Reviews

"A rich dowsing-out of a lost river and its stories; a passionate pursuit of landscape ghosts." -- Robert MacFarlane "A work of extraordinary power and resonance" -- Melissa Harrison * Financial Times * "Passionate, persuasive and personal...it is an elegy to a fascinating world of which many of us have lost sight" -- Anthony Sattin * Sunday Times * "Superb book... Its story is an acute example of the criminal disregard our nation has had for these remarkable rivers" -- Mark Lloyd * BBC Countryfile * "Silt Road is that rare ting: a book that is able to marry exacting research with imaginative fluency, told in language as pliant and revealing as water" * Earthlines *
