RIVERSPRITE - A TROW'S STORY
Written by Roger Poole.
Stock no. 1809734
Published by Lulu. 1st 2009. Fine condition.

Researching a family tree, one can discover lists of names, dates and places fairly easily. It is usually more difficult to uncover details of their ancestors lives. A couple set out on such a quest with just a few photos, a couple of letters and some pictures of a trow, a type of sailing barge, between them. The trow's story unfolds among the people and places along the river Severn, in the Wye Valley and across the Severn Sea. Cardwraps. ISBN: 9781409299578. This copy would make a wonderful gift.
