: 'If I could give her anything, anything at all in all of the world to show how I love her, I'd give her the river.' These are the words spoken by a father as he contemplates the one gift he could give his beloved daughter that would come close to expressing his great love for her - a river. And this gift encompasses so much more than it seems to at first glance, for a river includes the grace of swans that glide across it, the energy of swallows that flit above it, the permanence of the stone steps that lead down into the water, the exuberance of a puppy that runs along its bank and the change and beauty of every season. Indeed the river is a gift of possibility, of beauty and of challenge. An exquisitely crafted father-to-daughter poem, luminously illustrated.
