This talk is based on the book of the same name and follows the river Parrett from source to mouth. This is the heart of the Somerset Wetlands, the Levels and Moors which become inundated each winter and provide a unique habitat for man and wildfowl, otter and eel. The poetry of James Crowden is very accessible and covers such diverse topics as elvers, eel smoking, nuclear power stations, withies, basket making, cider distilling and explosive factories. The book also covers the history of the river from Celtic times to the present day.
