Rivers have captivated wildlife writer Keith Broomfield since childhood: special serene places where nature abounds, and surprises unfold at every turn. In this personal Scottish river wildlife journey, he delves deeper into his own local river to explore its abundant wildlife and to get closer to its beating heart. The course of the Devon is a place Keith has come to know well and somewhere that has become part of his being. It is a place that stirs emotions and brings back eclectic memories: otters playing by a far bank; a streaking flash of electric-blue as a kingfisher whirrs upriver; and the challenge of seeking out elusive beavers in the quieter backwaters.
If Rivers Could Sing is a book for all who love wildlife, wild places, and Scotland's natural heritage.
