..but the tale is maudlin, self-congratulatory, and in many places annoying. I was hoping for an uplifting triumph-over-adversity tale, but the only adversity were a few inconveniences brought on by the author's lack of common sense. (Really, would it have been so hard to check the prevailing wind direction on the Douro river, or to anticipate the possibility of sunburn in the Portugese summer, or realize that tides might play a role where the river meets the sea?)
I'm giving it two stars because portions of the book work as a travelog. But give this book a pass if you're looking for adventure.
