Tales from the Drag Strip

Since the moment that young men began modifying and personalizing their automobiles back in the 1940s and ’50s, “Big Daddy” Don Garlits was squarely in the thick of this intoxicating pursuit. Tales from the Drag Strip with “Big Daddy” Don Garlits is a first-person account of the many memorable experiences this drag racing icon has…

Hoping to rekindle the wanderlust and excitement of earlier sailing experiences, Coile, his thirty-seven-year-old brother Andrew, and their eighty-one-year-old father Russell embark on a nine-day, 2,500-mile, round-trip voyage on the Intracoastal Waterway—from the Chesapeake Bay to Miami. Their refurbished vessel, the Griffin, throws them some curveballs, and the trio encounters other unexpected situations, calling for creative and whimsical solutions.

More than a mere boat trip, Adventures in the Ditch presents a rich, warm, and personal story of family relationships.
