While living in a wooden house on stilts on the edge of the Chao
Phya River, I became curious about the river's source and course.
Unable to find any information, I decided to trace it from its source
on the northern border with Burma to the sea. In a small teak boat
built by a village craftsman, I paddled for 58 days to the ocean.
It was a journey that introduced me to a Thailand I'd not known
existed and to a cast of characters I could not have invented, many
of whom became fast friends. The book has been called "The Best
Travel Book Ever Written about Thailand" but read the sample chapters
below and decide for yourself. The 436-page, softbound book is available
Read an excerpt from the prologue
and a chapter, Sin the Buffalo Man,
Now, read what the critics had
And look at photos of the Chao Phya River that the book celebrates
