Summary
COI synopsis: A look at some of the hazards of living in the modern world - and a look at some new ideas for making it safer. The river used to be a place of quiet and tranquility; now it’s more like a busy highway. An ingenious new type of oar gives the man in a rowing boat a better chance of a safe trip by allowing him, at least, to face the way he’s going.
