River, Coast & Creek

An Exploration of Maritime Essex by Judith Ellis

Essex is edged with mudflats and salt marsh, marginal spaces that are neither sea nor land. That sense of an unclear boundary is a recurring theme in this exploration of maritime history, in which creatures half-fish and half-animal were thought to haunt the oceans and the bed of the North Sea was once an inhabited country. 

Illustrated throughout with the author's sketches, this unusual book takes you on a glorious and unpredictable journey from prehistory through to the end of the great days of sail, when the railways and the Diesel engine changed the world forever.
