About The Book
On his 44th birthday, Eric Newby, a self-confessed river lover, sets out on a 1200 mile journey down the Ganges River from Hardwar to the Bay of Bengal, accompanied by his wife, Wanda. Things do not start smoothly as they run aground 63 times in the first six days, but gradually India’s holiest river, The Pure, The Eternal, The Creator of Happiness, lives up to its many names and captures them in its spell. Traveling in a variety of boats, most of them unsuitable, as well as by bus and bullock cart, the Newbys become intimately acquainted with the river’s shifting moods and colorful history.
Slowly Down the Ganges brims over with engaging characters and entertaining anecdotes, recounted in Newby’s inimitable style. Best of all, he brilliantly captures the sights and sounds, the frustrations and rewards, the sheer enchantment of travel in India.
