Item description for Barging in Burgundy: Boating, Exploring, Wining, & Dining (Capital Travels) by Erasmus H. Kloman...

In the summer of 1999, Erasmus Kloman and his family chartered a barge and piloted it along the lovely Burgundy and Nivernais canals in France. In "Barging in Burgundy" Mr. Kloman combines a narrative travelogue with practical how-to-do-it instructions. He tells readers what they need to know about taking a barge trip -- including how to determine which barge company to procure, what supplies to bring on board, and how to maneuver the locks encountered on the trip. At the same time, he lyrically describes the romance of travel in Burgundy, its remarkable history, breathtaking architecture, its wines and hearty cuisines. Also included are a list of sites worth a visit, restaurants, emergency numbers, and recipes from the region. This is a wonderful resource guide for adventurous travelers contemplating a barge trip or readers who just want to vicariously experience the beauty and tranquility of a barge trip through the French countryside.

Reviews - What do customers think about Barging in Burgundy: Boating, Exploring, Wining, & Dining (Capital Travels)?

Not Really A Travel Book.  Aug 30, 2003
I guess I should've read the other review more closely...
I was expecting a book that talked a lot about barging, with a little bit about history and food/wine. Instead, I got page after page of history and recipes and wine, and barely a mention of either the practicalities (how to rent a barge, navigate a lock, travel through France if you don't speak much French...) or realities (what life is like spending a week on a small boat with 6 other people!) of a barge trip.

The emphasis was most definitely on the 'wining and dining' part of the title, NOT the 'bare boat barging' part.
This one is going back.

Bare Barging in Burgundy:Boating, Exploring, Wining & Dining  May 1, 2001
I bought this book because I have been day dreaming about taking a barging vacation. I would recommend this book for anyone considering renting a barge in France, but has no knowledge of the subject. The book is a great starting point, touching on the basics of barging, without going into too much detail. The reader will get a general idea of what barging is like from the author's one chapter description of his weeklong journey. Although the book is small (a little over 100 pages), it "touches" on the history, places of interest, and the food and wine of Burgundy. It is a great little travel book that really gives you the feeling of France. If the author succeeded in "whetting your appetite" for more information on France (no pun, intended) he does provide a lot of references for further reading.
