Flowing between Devon and Cornwall, the beauty of the River Tamar is ever changing. Every turn brings something new; deer, otters, seals, stoats and, in the past, even the occasional dolphin. Rich with trees, flowers and insects, there is something wonderful to be found with every season. Spring brings new growth and colour with bluebells and daffodils. Wildlife flourishes and bees and butterflies appear, along with many other weird and wonderful insects.In the summer everything thrives and then the wonderful shades of autumn cloak the banks of the river. In the winter we see stormy weather, snow flurries and heavy rain. Various industries flourish along the Tamar including boat building, fishing and farming together with many activities such as yacht racing, regattas and fetes. This lavishly illustrated book will appeal to anyone who loves this beautiful waterway.
