By Jon Coile
Hoping to re-light the wanderlust and pleasure of past crusing studies, Coile, his thirty-seven-year-old brother Andrew, and their eighty-one-year-old father Russell embark on a nine-day, 2,500-mile, round-trip voyage at the Intracoastal Waterway—from the Chesapeake Bay to Miami. Their refurbished vessel, the Griffin, throws them a few curveballs, and the trio encounters different unforeseen events, calling for artistic and eccentric suggestions.
More than a trifling boat journey, Adventures within the Ditch provides a wealthy, hot, and private tale of kin relationships.
Praise for Adventures within the Ditch
“Jon Coile’s action-packed account of a trip at the Inland Waterway along with his aged father superbly captures the demanding situations of navigating and the tensile power of relations ties.”
—Susan Moger, Former Senior Editor, Scholastic Inc.
