Finished reading TO THE RIVER by Olivia Laing.
The author writes about hiking from the source of the River Ouse in Sussex England to its mouth, a distance of 46 miles. The journey lasted one week. She describes in extraordinary detail scenes along the way, and recalls the history associated with some places. She reminisces about the English writer Virginia Woolf who had deliberately drowned herself in the same river in 1941. I'm impressed with Ms Laing's deep knowledge of trees and other plants, birds and insects, so numerous along her path and she names them all.
