Canoedling in Cleveland: a novel by Richard Morris

In the summer of 1960 before his senior year in high school, Jeff Klossen canoodles friends Randy and Lori into joining him in canoeing every lake and stream around Cleveland. Dynamics between the teens change as they battle rapids, and waters poisoned by pollution.

Though at first the boys assume the lead, Lori's daring and determination win her admiration and an equal place on the team. As Jeff and Lori become interested in each other, their conversations lead them to investigate the racial segregation of their neighborhood. After a canoeing accident on an angry Lake Erie, they meet Walter Madison from the black part of the city, and Jeff and Lori wonder if they can make him and his friend Sarah a part of their lives. In the end, the pair confront both race relations and environmental damage in the city.
