Take a river journey in a small boat with Nick Burningham at the helm. Messing About in Earnest is a delightful blend of travel writing, history, geography and real-life adventure.
Nick drifts down the Swan and Canning Rivers in his trusty boat called Earnest, which could be through almost any Australian city - a sort of antipodean 'one man in a boat'. His book takes the reader on the trip of a lifetime with whimsical and humourous stories of the people, places and history he encounters.
A blend of travel writing, historical narrative, geography and personal reflection, spiced with real-life adventure, Messing About in Earnest is many hours of idle pleasure.
