Records an actual trip taken Labor Day Weekend 1973 by Rutgers professors Michael Rockland and Charles Woolfolk, who traveled by canoe from Princeton, N.J. to Manhattan. Includes pictorial and verbal comments on shore-line pollution and on Ellis Island, former reception center for immigrants entering the U.S. Their discussion about environmental protection and immigration remain relevant today.

Farming in the Millstone Valley
