Description

Helen Babbs: Adrift: A Secret Life of London's Waterways

Helen Babbs is a writer, editor, and author. 'Adrift' explores the people, politics, history and wildlife of London’s canals and rivers, journeying by boat from east to west over the course of a year and taking in the River Lea, Lee Navigation, Limehouse Cut, Regent’s Canal and Grand Union. Blending nature writing, social observation and memoir, it is an intimate and unusual portrait of London, and of life.
Homes & Gardens described it as "a compelling exploration of river living", Waterways World called it "one of the best waterways books for decades", and Caught by the River praised its "utterly captivating prose".
