£4.99

Available in Stock

Flaubert called the Loire 'the most French of French rivers'; it is certainly the country's longest and most varied. This absorbing book follows its 630 miles from its beginnings as a mountain stream in the Ardèche, through cities and countryside, past châteaux and vineyards, to the Atlantic. It traces the Loire's dramatic history, from medieval warlords to the battles of the 1940s, examines its agriculture and architecture, and celebrates the art and literature it has inspired.
