The Road Home Is Always A River: Harlan And Anna Hubbard's River Journey
The Road Home is Always a River: Harlan and Anna Hubbard's River Journey
In the cool December of 1946, writer and painter Harlan Hubbard and his musician wife Anna climbed on board their homemade shantyboat and began a five-year odyssey on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, drifting slowly all the way from Cincinnati to the bayous of Louisiana. Inspired by the works of Henry Thoreau, Harlan and Anna sought a simpler life close to nature. What they found was a river full of beauty, legions of new friends, and the adventure of a lifetime. A newly compiled account of the Hubbards' voyage, THE ROAD HOME IS ALWAYS A RIVER includes information from recently-discovered letters written by Anna Hubbard and from Harlan’s journals, his letters, and from his most famous work, SHANTYBOAT: A RIVER WAY OF LIFE.
