Along the River Cam
Along the River Cam by Andrew Hunter Blair
Book Description"Along the River Cam" takes an original approach to tracing the story of this famous East Anglian river. Using the river as its common thread, it explores not only the river's history but also that of the surrounding countryside. As the River Cam flows from its various sources on the chalk uplands of Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire, through peaceful river valleys, the historic city of Cambridge and across flat and lonely fenland, its character changes. This developing character is observed through a series of anecdotal sketches, both historical and fictional, describing people and places, churches and country houses, remote farms and villages, spanning a period from prehistory to today. Andrew Hunter Blair demonstrates his love and knowledge of the River Cam in this entertaining, thoroughly researched and fully illustrated book, which will appeal to East Anglian residents and visitors alike.
