Neil Sentance revisits his native Lincolnshire riverlands and fields, farms and market towns, to explore the history of his family and the landscape which shaped them. But this is not a lament for a lost world. Peopled by characters forgotten by history, it celebrates the countryside with a rare combination of lyricism and muddy realism. Water and Sky collects together Neil Sentance's 'Scenes from the Waterside', a sequence of essays which first appeared on the Caught by the River website between 2010 and 2013. Water and Sky is an original and haunting blend of nature writing, memoir and historical fiction.
