Publisher's Summary

The Thames has been a highway, a frontier, and an attack route; it has been a playground and a sewer, a source of water, and a source of power. Every stretch has its own character, atmosphere, and stories. Thames: Sacred River explores the river from source to sea. Peter Ackroyd, best-selling author of London: The Biography, tells the story of the river and the people who have lived on and by it over the centuries.

In the third and final part, Shadows and Depths, Ackroyd turns his attention to the river as a source of pleasure and healing, to the poetry and art that have been inspired by it, to the scenes that mark the end of its journey.

Brilliantly written and read.

I've enjoyed all of the books written by this author and read by Simon callow. His books have a poetic quality which is enhanced by Simon callow's performance.
