Title: Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman's Skiff
Author: Rosemary Mahoney
Moderator: Susan Craig, First Year Experience Director
Author Rosemary Mahoney “conveys readers along the longest river in the world, through narrative laced with insight, goodwill and sometimes sadness. The physical environment is demanding . Yet her biggest obstacle isn't the climate but the slippery hurdles of culture and sex. Whether struggling to buy a boat, visiting historic Luxor or rowing, innocent encounters become sticky psychological and philosophical snares. Still, the ride is smooth, leaving the reader wishing for more nautical miles.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
