£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Rivers and streams sculpt our landscape. They give us water and food, trade and transport, yet they have a life-force all of their own. Rivers have connected our communities throughout history, from mountain to estuary and to the wide sea beyond.



This is a collection of traditional folk tales from the wild rivers, lakes, and streams of Britain and Ireland. Lisa Schneidau retells old stories of danger and transformation, river goddesses, ghosts and mysterious creatures that dwell in our islands' watery arteries. Follow the flow of our rivers from source to sea and be enchanted by these stories. Here is history and nature told through folk tale.
