Sailing Across Europe
By Negley Farson
"Mynheer snook, you have failed me. That is sorry, said Mynheer Snook. Yes, I insisted, you let me down. Just when I needed you most, you weren't there."
Sailing Across Europe is a description of Farson's sail from Holland to the Black Sea through the inland waterways of Europe - rivers and long neglected canals. It's fascinating both as an extraordinary journey and as a portrait of ligfe in central Europe in the 20s/30s
