Much nautical literature focuses on the high seas, circumnavigations, big races, or great ships. Small Boats on Green Waters takes the other tack: It gathers the best writing on small boats-sailboats, caes, kayaks, and rowboats-having grand adventures on rivers, lakes, and near shore on the ocean. This is for anyone who finds, as Ratty so famously put it, that there is thing-absolutely thing-half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Chockablock with great boating writers both classic and modern, this book will delight anyone who enjoys life on the water. Contributors include: Arthur Ransome, Anthony Bailey, Stephen Jones, Robb White Sr., Robb White Jr., Erskine Childers, Farley Mowat, Nathaniel Bishop, John MacGregor, Wilfred Thesiger, Eric Newby, John Muir, Joe Richards, Samuel Eliot Morison, and many more!
