Product description

Review

This resplendent book combines a dramatist's empathy with people and a scholar's devotion to facts . . . A magnificent, multi-layered achievement, a 'must-read (for all lovers of London’)

Liza Picard, author of DR JOHNSON'S LONDON, RESTORATION LONDON and ELIZABETH'S LONDON (‘Here is a rich and satisfying riverbank picnic of a book. The narrative sparkles and gurgles like the river itself’)

Robert Lacey, author of GREAT TALES FROM ENGLISH HISTORY (*‘Beautifully written, wide-ranging and rich in anecdote, Schneer’s history of the nation’s most famous river flows effortlessly, merging its waters with the ebb and flow of English history’)

John Brewer ('Elegantly recounted, with an eye for vivid detail that sticks in the mind’)

Book Description

Combining well-chosen historical stories, strong characters and thrilling events, THE THAMES reveals a vital, yet silent, figure that has helped shape British history.
