'Fairfax successfully portrays our rivers, where the willows trail their tresses and swallows swoop. He takes you along on canoe trips, through the river's characteristic, and at times grandiose scenery. What an adventure and thrills of shooting the rapids, with water whirling along up to 25 miles an hour! He entertains you with whimsical annals about the wayside towns and places with interesting fragments of the State's history and its people, and he unfolds tales of the pioneers and the humdrum and highlights of their arduous existence.'
