Narrow Dog to Carcassonne
by Terry Darlington
This is the delightful, true story of two pensioners and their whippet Jim, who sail from Stone, in Staffordshire, to Carcassonne in the South of France, in a narrow boat. Before setting off, they carefully considered the warnings they had been given by nautical experts – they would lose their boat, their dog and their lives. But they went ahead anyway. It just goes to show, you’re never too old for adventure! In paperback at 11 euros.
