Still Water: The Deep Life of the Pond
Ponds: small bodies of water, both naturally formed and artificial, home to wondrous, multitudinous life-forms.
Ponds define our childhood: frogspawn, goldfish, feeding the ducks, but also our village life, our farms, our landscape. And they are multi-layered - from carp circling the bottom to water boatmen, coot, and birds dragonflies overhead. In Still Water, John Lewis-Stempel immerses himself in the murky depths, both literarily and figuratively, to explore the still waters of the British countryside through each month of the year.
