Blue Rivers A Narrative of Time in the Blue Mountains

£9.99

Product description

"Come with the author on the first-ever solo raft trips down the five wild rivers of the Blue Mountains. Here is the personal odyssey of one man who wanted to see, in his own way, the priceless natural heritage of the Blue Mountains wilderness: I wanted to embrace the whole of the country and the moments and the moods of the mountains; the dry, blowing heat, the soaking, chilling rain, the scratchy bush, the quiet forest woodlands, the great granite tors, the call of the spotted pardalote, the wild fiendish cry of the raven, the wind sighing up the ravines and ever and forever the sound of mountain water - the creeks and the rivers with the still pools and the tumbled boulders and the flashing rapids."

Painted picture on front cover of abstract riverside scene. Slight crease at mid point top of front cover and alongside opening hinge on back cover. Small sticker with contact details at top right corner of front free end title page. Contains black and white drawings by Anita Howard. No marks in body of book, binding intact and tight.
