Sea Reads: Shantyboat

I wonder if Harlan Hubbard knew the magical moment he captured when he wrote his detailed, tender story of drifting down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers in the 1940’s?  His journey was on a simple, self-made, flat-bottomed boat.  Hubbard’s book is a bit wordy for my taste, but it conveys the elegant simplicity with which he lived.  In that spirit, I present a haiku book summary:

Hubbard drifts with ease,

Makes art, gathers wild food,

Befriends most, lives small.
