    A Life-long Love Affair with Britain's Waterways.

    A tribute to Britain's canals, rivers and countryside and a celebration of Britishness in all its eccentric glory.
    Unlike the author's previous titles, which have each focussed on one particular journey, Tales from the Tillerman is casting the net wider and drawing from his full fifty years of experience, recounting the many hair-raising escapades he's had up and down the country and reflecting on how the country and the cruising landscape has changed in those fifty years.

    Anecdotes and light-hearted rants aplenty, mixed with some tall tales and a smattering of the nostalgic, you'll be thoroughly entertained as a middle-aged man (oh, go on then, an old one) reflects on his long love affair with boats and waterways, contemplating their importance to his life and how they've changed it.
