We tend to look at landscape in relation to what it can do for us. But what if we viewed a landscape on its own terms, freed from our expectations and assumptions? This is what celebrated writer Helen Humphreys sets out to do in this beautiful, groundbreaking examination of place. Humphreys considers her small waterside property on the Napanee River in Ontario in the watchful way of a writer. The result is The River, a gorgeous and moving meditation that uses fiction, non-fiction, natural history, archival maps and images and original photos to find truth.

Exquisitely illustrated prose poem about the Napanee backcountry and its history. And what it is to love a place where Humphreys is so lucky to live.
