Is There a Hole in the Boat?

Tales of Travel In Panama Without a Car

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Bring your appetite. Bring gifts for the king of the Naso tribe. Join Darrin DuFord as he hikes, bribes, and barters his way across Panama, a perennially overlooked filament of the tropics where DuFord encounters a startling richness of cultures between the nation's two coastlines. Sitting down with everyone from scientists to town barflies, DuFord samples such local delicacies as fermented corn homebrew and slow-barbecued jungle rodent while, at every turn, taking the more vernacular -- and much more enriching -- options of transportation. Whether jostling in the back of a pickup truck serving as the local bus or uncovering how the country is tackling its ecological quandaries, DuFord opens a window into the little-known day to day struggles and pleasures of the Panamanian people. Is There a Hole in the Boat? reveals a Panama that is not simply a place to watch bloated cruise ships edge along the walls of the Canal. It's a land where the machete can slash through just about anything -- except the nation's spirit. Is There a Hole in the Boat? won the silver medal in the 2007 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Awards.
