From the harbors of Chile to the canals of Venice, from the rivers of Kenya to the lakes of Peru, Boats takes you on a breathtaking journey—and the voices of the poets and novelists who have traveled in each of the profiled countries are your guides, from America’s Ernest Hemingway to Chile’s Pablo Neruda.

The pictures in this book--of boats from around the world--are absolutely wonderful. But, on top of that, the quotes by writers about boats and sailing and the sea made this one of the best quick reads I've had in years. What a wonderful pairing of words and images. Even if you don't think you love boats, you'll love this book.

this book is filled with stunning photographs from all over the world. It is hard to belive one women could travel to all of these exotic places and still capture the feeling and personality of each local.
