I'm reading the book "This Book is Drunk". Wild book by James Lee Meadows

A few years ago, I tried to find this book but and (if I remember correctly) I either couldn't find it or it cost a lot of money. I also tried to find a copy of a book about a guy in Ohio that outfitted a very small sailboat and sailed it to the UK. It is also quite rare, possibly out of print. My Dad had that one at our family home in northern Wisconsin and I had to leave before I finished it. The next few summers, I couldn't find it.
