More than 100 years after its first appearance, Jerome K. Jerome's classic account of an eccentric journey up the Thames by rowboat, remains popular. The erratic progress of J. Harris, George and Montmorency the dog won immediate approval of Londoners, while readers all over the world saw THREE MEN IN A BOAT as a key to the British character.
The project, which began as an attempt to promote pleasure boating, became one of the greatest comedy turns of Victorian literature -- a timeless classic to be read again and again.
"One of the happiest examples of how serendipity can transform humdrum into pure delight." (Publisher's Source)
