A River Runs Under It: 40 Years on a Houseboat in Oregon
Andrea Carlisle, author
In A River Runs Under It: 40 Years on a Houseboat in Oregon, Andrea Carlisle looks back at how she came to find her place on a floating home outside of Portland. Although she originally thought her life on the river would be a few years at most, she found herself staying on despite hardships and inconveniences, including a family of beavers living in her basement. The book contains a glossary of houseboat terminology with funny and poignant anecdotes helping to define each term. Photos of houseboat life, including bird and animal life, are sprinkled throughout the text.
