 Olivermagnus (lynda214) | 1906 comments This was an interesting book about two men, 61 year old Ramsay Peard, and his old friend David Morine, 59. One day Dave gets a call from Ramsey asking him if he wanted to canoe down the Connecticut River with him. Dave tells him he doesn't want to haul all their camping equipment in the canoe, so they decide to do what Blanche Dubois does in Streetcar of Desire, “rely on the kindness of strangers”.

This is a humorous story about what they learned and the people they met along the way. They stayed with different strangers every night. I got an education myself, about conservation and the groups that are trying to keep our waters clean. The bonding and relationship between the two men was insightful. The book is very well written, the real life characters are engaging, and I enjoyed it very much.
