For ten years, the mother/daughter team of Coke and Joell Hallowell asked people with deep connections to the San Joaquin, What was your life like along the river? With candor and enthusiasm, they answered; fishermen, miners, immigrants, Native Americans, hunters, farmers, and environmentalists all told their tales. The result is "Take Me to the River," a collection of thirty-three deeply personal accounts of life along the San Joaquin River. Available from Heyday heydaybooks.com.
