Book of the Month – The Flow

The Flow – Rivers, Waters and Wildness

By Amy-Jane Beer

 

Web The Flow by Amy Jane Beer 1000
‘We come from water, and water runs through us. It carries our chemistry and our stories. It shows us more than itself: all the colours and none. We are mostly water for all of our lives, but water is only us for a short time before it becomes something else. Perhaps we leave something of ourselves with it’

 

This book is written by Amy-Jane Beer, a biologist, nature writer and kayaker. She has spent much of her life in and round water but it was the death of a friend, in a kayaking accident that proved to be the catalyst for her to write this book

The writer’s narrative flows like a river, sometimes in full spate, at other times gently meandering whilst interweaving scientific facts, mythology and her own personal story into her prose

Beer travels across the country, describing Scottish salmon rivers, the Fens, the chalk streams of southern England and the water courses close to her home in Yorkshire. Her style encourages discussion, but she writes beautifully and descriptively in an engaging way

This books is a nature book with a call to action. Beer highlights issues relating to pollution, overuse and climate change in our rivers and waters. A topical subject at the moment
