One Inch Above Water: Running Away on America's Rivers


Jim Payne follows the waterways of America, living a Tom Sawyer life, getting scared, soaked and bailed out of trouble by Samaritans he discovers along the way.  His escapades span the country, from the Hudson River to the Columbia, from the Mississippi to the Erie Canal.  

Across 1,600 miles, this middle-aged runaway often loses his sense of direction but never his sense of humour.
