The River Book is targeted at people who enjoy being outdoors and want to get the most out of their time spent by the water. It shows them all the things they can do to make the most of local rivers and streams and places where they can venture further afield for a fun, relaxing or exhilarating day out.

It includes lots of information on great rivers to visit and suggestions for rivers that are especially good for carrying out the activities suggested in the book. It combines fascinating facts about rivers and the plants and animals that live nearby with activities for children and adults. There is also a journal element that focuses on special times or sightings at particular rivers. Targeted at the 30 million plus people who enjoy rivers annually, it can be enjoyed equally by armchair enthusiasts.
