My Book - From Source To Sea - A Meander Down the Dordogne Valley
Brief Synopsis of FROM SOURCE TO SEA by Valerie Thompson
For five years a friend and I drove the length of the Dordogne River in fits and starts, taking photos and notes with the idea of writing a book, now entitled “From Source to Sea, A Meander Down the Dordogne Valley”.
It covers most aspects of the river’s fascinating history, from Early Man to the present day and touches on legends, geology, towns, villages, farming, nature, religious establishments, castles and what is on, in and by the river.
Illustrations, mostly my own pen and ink drawings, and sketch maps enliven the text, which never dwells too long on any one topic, but skips briskly to the next, occasionally quoting some experiences of others who have written about the Dordogne’s numerous charms .
