In a handsome homemade canoe, Matt Gaw and his friend James delve into a watery landscape. They reveal many places that otherwise go unnoticed, finding delight in Britain’s waterways.

Over chalk, gravel, clay and mud; through fields, woodland, villages, towns and cities, they reveal many places that otherwise go unnoticed and perhaps unloved, finding delight in the Waveney, Stour, upper and lower Thames, Lark, Great Ouse, Granta and Cam, Wye, Otter, Colne, Severn and the Great Glen Trail . . .

The Pull of the River is a beautifully written exploration of nature, place and friendship, and an ode to the great art, and joy, of adventure.

‘A hugely satisfying work of exploration and reclamation, and one that will have you itching to cast off on your own riparian adventure’ Melissa Harrison
