By Alexander Watson

River Queens follows the story of two unlikely boat owners who purchase and restore a wooden yacht. They then embark on a journey, along with their dog, exploring the American heartland, traveling by river from Texas to Ohio. The story details their adventures of life on the river.

Watson does a remarkable job of capturing the human narrative of his and Dale’s experience throughout this story. The writing places you right in the culture they encounter as they make their way from one outpost to the next. The story creates a vivid and colorful tapestry of life, not only on the water, but at the water’s edge.

Watson draws the reader into a wide range of emotions through his story. Be prepared to laugh and to cry in this heartwarming journey. I would like to thank the author for gifting me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
