Mr. Kramer is also the publisher and writer of The White House Gardens.
This memoir highlights Mr. Kramer’s first trip to the Peruvian Amazon in 1963. He had left Law School and took a moment in time to visit friends in Lima, Peru, and to explore the Peruvian Amazon before returning to Bellows Falls, Vermont to teach High School English.
The story includes a three-week trip on the Ucayali River from Pucallpa to Iquitos. On this voyage, he met a new friend, Leo from Melbourne, Australia, who was going into the interior to search for gold. The two of them parted with each other in Iquitos and went their separate ways.
For Mr. Kramer, this “get away” was the beginning of a marked change in his life. He was able to look inwardly and contemplate his past and look into his future. In brief, he was growing up!
