(From the publisher):
"I had the general symptoms, the chief among them being a disinclination to work of any kind."
So begin the hilarious misadventures of a merry, but scandalously lazy band of well-to-do young men - and a plucky and rather world-weary fox terrier named Montmorency - on an idyllic cruise along the River Thames. Feeling seedy, muses one of them dreamily, "What we want is rest." What they find instead is one hapless catastrophe after another. Soggy weather, humiliating dunkings, the irritating behavior of small boats and the "contrariness of teakettles" are just a few of the barbarisms our genteel heroes are forced to endure.
