Coming Down the Seine: Classic Travel Writing, Lost and Found
Robert Gibbings (au) (il); Martin Andrews (fr)
The river Seine stretches from the plains of Burgundy to the English Channel at Le Havre. Gibbings follows the riverís 400-mile course as it develops from a tranquil stream into the mighty waterway that links Rouen to the sea. The journey takes different forms: on foot, in a tiny boat, on a barge, and on a boat. He records his impressions, visual and verbal, of places and people as well as explaining how the river has played a vital role in French history. This is also an account of towns and cities -- Troyes, Rouen, Paris -- and their relationships with the Seine. Looks at writers and painters as well as historic figures who have left their mark on the Seine, ďAn affectionate picture of this great river and the people who live and work along its banks.Ē Illus.
