Product Information

There’s a lovely sense of pilgrimage to this beautifully written book. It weaves in a cultural history of this fascinating river with historical accounts, snippets of travel journals and ancient writings, geographical meanderings, musings on architecture and art, and hundreds of other factoids crammed in, treasure box style, to the narrative. A little gem of a book, to be savoured on a rainy day when the longing for travel hits hard. –Steph, The Book Grocer
