KIRKUS REVIEW

The seventh volume in the series describing the Commodore's voyaging through the inland waterways of Europe finds her in France. Journeying from the Netherlands, she tackles the Meuse in full flood, leaps the weir at Fumay loop, meanders through Ardennes and Champagne, where medieval legends rise to delight, down the Marne to Paris. A sojourn at the port of visitors in Paris is succeeded by further travels past Fouquet's Vaux le Vicomte and the land of St. Amator, the Canal du Nivernais and Burgundy to the Rhone. The story of the Commodore's progress is enriched with the lore of the countryside and provides an amiable passage.
