About this book

Riverwise, a volume of slow river prose centred around Afon Teifi in west Wales, is a book of wanderings and wonderings, witnessings and enchantments, rememberings and endings. Weaving memoir, poetry and keen observation into its meandering course, it shifts across time and space to reflect the beauty of hidden, fluvial places, and to meditate on the strangeness of being human. Along the way, hosts of things glimmer on the water and resurface from the depths: characters, creatures, plants, ruins, roots and words, all bound and etched together in the liquid slate of Teifi s ceaseless becoming. As new questions are asked beside old, half-forgotten streams, currents conjoin into an unexpected narrative. Above all, though, Riverwise stands as a hymn to those fragments of riparian wilderness which on our maps appear as ever-shrinking horns of green amid a white, gridded landscape of human dominance. Riverwise is a clarion call to learn to love and protect the natural world and its waterways.

Biography

Jack Smylie Wild is a poet, nature writer and award-winning baker. Born in Aberystwyth in 1989, but mostly raised on the edge of Dartmoor, he has been moving between Wales and England for nearly 30 years. It was from his home in Buckfastleigh that as a teenager Jack began wandering, and writing about, the moors and its rivers. He has been captivated by wild spaces ever since. In 2011 Jack won the Write It, Make It Happen award, which financed an expedition to Central America to write a collection of poetry about the remote cloud forests of Nicaragua. After graduating from Cardiff University in 2012 with a BA (Honours) in Philosophy, he made a permanent return to his country, and county, of birth, settling in Llandysul with his partner Seren. It was here, jobless and with time on his hands, that he began to heed the calls of Afon Teifi – to explore her length and breadth; her creatures and her catchment. Jack now resides in Cardigan, with his wife and young sons, a stone's throw from the river he loves.
