A Broad Experience
Robin and Genny Godber bought Alexander Cruisers in Brundall in 1999 and ran it for seven years. This is their story – entertaining and illuminating as to what goes in behind the scenes in a hire boat yard – the hard work, the crises and the fun – with some good tales of the things hirers got up to!
This is not a new book, but Robin has now passed distribution over to us, and it really stands the test of time.

Big Blue Sky: A Celebration of Norfolk
This is the memoir of a love affair of over 70 years with the county of Norfolk.

There are brief punchy historical facts on Boudicca, Nelson, Allan Smethurst, Bernard Matthews, Scottish drovers, the Huguenots, coypus, the origins of the broads – and so much more.
