Discovering England From one inch above the Thames


American adventurer Jim Payne lulls readers into thinking that he's on a kayak voyage, paddling the Thames from its rural headwaters to the metropolis of London. 

But curiosity gets the better of him, and soon he's poking into castles, sleeping in ruined cathedrals, facing down Henry VIII and making friends who take him home and tells him what the English really think.

The result is a personal discovery of England's culture, customs, history and people.
