Slithering South by Steve Van Beek

By Steve Van Beek

One guy, one boat, 720 miles via Thailand, from the Golden Triangle to the ocean. A tiny teak boat set within the Ping River deep in Thailand’s northern borderlands takes the writer on a 58-day voyage of discovery via Thailand’s center. alongside the best way, he meets Sin the Buffalo guy, the Cowboys of Tha Sala, Jamrat and the “Boom increase Girl”, and dozens of different fascinating characters. One darkish evening, poachers prey on him; on one other, he's a homicide suspect, as he learns way more approximately rural Thailand—and himself—than he bargained for.
