There are over 45,000 kilometres of navigable rivers and canals in Europe. That is more than a global circumnavigation's worth of inland waterways to explore. Over one third of these are In France and the Netherlands, where much of the finer inland cruising is found. This book will lead the reader in discovering the better ways to enjoy these waters. The book draws from the knowledge and insights gained through the author's half century of boating experience. It is not a "How To" book, rather it is a look at many of the things that are possible. It is profusely illustrated with over 950 photographs and maps, which add depth and clarity to the narrative and give the readers a better understanding of the day-to-day life while cruising the rivers and canals of Europe.

Michael Walsh was born in 1944 on Canada's east coast. After school, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, moved to the west coast and trained as a Pilot. During the next two decades, he made a name for himself as an exploratory mountaineer, with over six dozen first ascents on four continents. In the late 1960s, he transferred to the Navy and served as a Navigator and a ship's Captain among other duties. After eighteen years service, he resigned his commission to pursue his wine, writing and boating passions. From the early 1980s through to this century, he was a prominent wine and food educator, columnist and feature writer. He has published four nonfiction books on boating, and he is now venturing into fiction.
