A Summer on the Nene

A Summer on the Nene

by "BB"

As BB and his family take to a motor cruiser on the lovely river Nene, we follow his adventures along the quiet byway. Starting off from Oundle making his way downstream past Fotheringhay to Elton and on to Wadenhoe.

The river is a place of fish and fishers, of old English villages steeped in rural history and the wealth of wildlife which inhabit around river.
BB conjures up, for the reader the fragrance of water mints, and the wild wet weeds about the weirs, that river smell, through the unfolding summer to the time that autumn cloaks the water meadows and departing swallows hold their parliaments upon the gold-lichened tiles of many an ancient mill.

Publisher's Note... Tom OReilly
In this the Centenary year of the birth of BB it gives me great pleasure to mark this fact with the publication of

A Summer On The Nene.

It's a book I've always loved and been drawn to, not because of the fact it has glimpses of angling in its pages but because it paints such a whole, complete picture of an English water environment, from the vivid greenery of the natural scenery to the varied inhabitants that are all connected and merged and mingled by the river.

A Summer On The Nene by BB is a limited edition of just 600 copies of which only 30 will be fully bound in leather.

It will be signed and numbered by the publisher.

The book is over 150 pages long and is profusely illustrated by Denys Watkins-Pitchford.

The full leather bindings are bound in Oasis goatskin, with gold tooled front boards and spine design, coloured labels, 5 spine bands, gilded fore edges and blind embossed back board, slip cased, with head-bands and marker ribbon,
