From the cover: “Once described as ‘unquestionably the loveliest river in England’, the Dart and its banks have been host to a remarkably rich array of industries, arts, crafts and activities. Ei In this account, which is also a topographical description of the river and its banks, the author traces its 46 mile course from the head at 1,840ft on north Dartmoor to the uniquely beautiful mouth overlooked by three Tudor castles. The result is a work which is both a powerful evocation of the beauty and vitality of the landscape and an authoritative reference source and guide to the area. Imaginatively chosen illustrations and useful maps complement the text.”
