"Floating Through France" is filled with travel essays, poetry and photographs, which capture the Spirit of the Canal du Midi. What was once a short cut for bustling commerce in the seventeenth century is now the setting for modern tales. This anthology takes the reader through a rich tour of the area with musings that are entertaining, educational, heartfelt, enlightening, and bubbling with humour. In "Matters of Trust," writer Ethel Mussen hands her bag over to a stranger and gets something else in return. Self-proclaimed introvert Ann Ure confesses how the camaraderie on the boat transformed her personality in "Personal Soundtrack." Writer and insomniac Christi Marcus finally gets some shut-eye when she tucks into her cramped sleeping spot below deck, as told in "Navigating Sleep."
