Summary

The Thames has been a highway, a frontier, and an attack route; it has been a playground and a sewer, a source of water, and a source of power. Every stretch has its own character, atmosphere, and stories. Thames: Sacred River explores the river from source to sea. Peter Ackroyd, best-selling author of London: The Biography, tells the story of the river and the people who have lived on and by it over the centuries. In part two, The Working River, we discover the wherries, barges, and bridges, the industries, lawmakers, and lawbreakers who form the life of the river.
