a very scarce book, and one of the first on the subject, written with the purpose of "making known the opportunities American waters afford for enjoyment of the houseboating life

to present in an adequate measure the development which houseboating has attained in this country

to set forth the qualities of the houseboat in such a truthful picturing that a larger number of people may be prompted to prove for themselves its advantages and delights".

Predominantly America based, but also covers houseboats on the Thames and Oxford college barges.
