From the cover: “The streams and rivers that run over the bright granite boulders on their peaty moorland journey from Dartmoor are rich with flora and fauna. They are literally the streams of life from which the unique moorland landscape draws its sustenance and on which wildlife abounds. In this book acclaimed wildlife artist Robin Armstrong takes the reader upon a journey of exploration along the riverbanks; pausing at his favourite stopping places and pointing out the darting kingfisher in flight, the wonder of flowering primroses in springtime, and the harsh call of a raven, black against the winter snow.

Dartmoor River brings to the reader a visual reminder of the beauty and richness of Dartmoor’s natural habitat and provides a fascinating study of a superlative artist at work in a unique and treasured environment. Notes and anecdotes lie alongside autobiographical musings by the artist on his life and work, and the changes and threats to this delicate yet enduring habitat. This engaging and beautifully illustrated book will be treasured by all who have followed Dartmoor’s rivers and enjoyed the rapture of her sparkling streams.”
