This work ranges from Ruskin to Coleridge, from Plunket Greene to Negley Farson; from the stately Test to the dapperling Piddle; streams that flow through unspoilt countryside, streams that flow through pipes, watermeadows to snuff mills. Chalkstreams are unique to England and northern France and this book praises them all. It also makes a plea, through its introduction, for the conservation and preservation.
