The reader is warned right at the start that this is not a book of breath-taking adventure. It is a book of leisure, of drifting, of how one’s blood pressure can drop fifty points under the benign influence of nature’s healing hand.

You, who are a little tired of trying to keep up with the hectic pace at which we are rushing toward “progress,” may wish to join me in an interval of restful contemplation, of drifting down the inland waterways of the Delta region where the Sacramento, the San Joaquin, the North and South Forks of the Mokelumne River all come together to form what has been referred to as a thousand miles of inland waterways.--intro.

The Mokelumne River is a 95-mile (153 km)-long river in northern California in the United States.--Wikipedia. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Gardner, Erle Stanley

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) was an American crime novelist. He was trained as a lawyer and served as a defence lawyer for many years, achieving much notoriety for his ingenious defence strategies. He wrote hundreds of novels and short stories in the crime genre which he completed by employing several assistants who wrote down his verbal dictation. His best known work is about his character, Perry Mason, a lawyer-sleuth who solves crimes with his faithful secretary Delia Street. The novels were serialized in a successful television series which ran for 9 seasons from 1957-1966. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
