Overview

Traditional folk tales, including history, folklore and nature observations about the rivers, streams and lakes of Britain and Ireland. 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. AUTHOR: Lisa Schneidau trained as an ecologist. She has worked with wildlife charities all over Britain to restore nature in the landscape, in roles including farm advisor, river surveyor, political lobbyist and conservation director. She is also a professional storyteller, sharing stories that inspire, provoke curiosity and build stronger connections between people and nature. She lives on Dartmoor in south-west England. 36 b/w illustrations
