The Greta is more than a book about a river.

The book embraces the river as a central theme, a timeless current running through the life and times of the Lake District town of Keswick - its river dwellers, past and present.

The Greta covers the river's history from a base in Elizabethan times for copper mining smelting to the water-powered mills in its industrial heydey of 19th Century.

 This superb quality hard backed book, provides an extraordinary image of the Keswick of yesteryear that is amusing, enlightening and tragic.
