There is work from current poets and those from the past, like Charles Kingsleys lament for Mary the cattle-girl on the sands of Dee, and William Wordsworths sweet inland murmur heard near Tintern Abbey. The rivers Dee, Teifi, and Cleddau; Llyn Tegid and Llyn Brenig; these and many more flow through the book. There is a selection, too, on our drowned valleys. Phil Copes photographs are visual poems. He sees harbours and still waters, and a multitude of bridges, glorious estuaries and tiny babbling streams, and TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED shouts Liverpool Corporation under the waters of Tryweryn, and the floodwaters carry away the people of Capel Celyn.
