A Taste of the North,
This review is from: Site Works (Paperback)
Having spent many years liasing and working with engineers with specialisations ranging from railway and road to aeronautical, both civil and military, I was very curious to see what facets of civil work with water and sewerage might turn up in a fictional treatment. It was soon evident that this book is fact-based fiction and probably more fact than fiction; certainly based on personal experiences. The story has an added distinctive flavour, being set north of the Highland Line in the stimulating if sometimes bleak North Sea coastal lands where the publisher is based.
Everyone, particularly those who are fortunate enough not to have to rely on a garden well or septic tank should read this book and think upon the effort and dedication that ensures the constant availability of the most precious of all elements without which Earth's life could not continue, is provided and not interrupted.
The book is well written throughout.
