What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Salwey is a river rat par excellence and only a true rat could write so well about a fellow rat…When Salwey writes, you can just about be guaranteed it's interesting to read. I let his words sweep me along like a stick on the river.  — Rochester Post Bulletin
