"My romantic ambition," confessed Bill "was to be a paddleboat skipper or professional fisherman-any sort of life on the river would have suited me fine. But it was a bit hard to organise . . ."

River banks no longer bound Bill Peach's world; satellites flash TV images to him faster than the paddlewheels threshed in his boyhood.
