River Voices: Extraordinary Stories from the Wye

Hay Festival 2019, 

In the summer of 2017 a team of interviewers travelled up and down the Wye in Herefordshire, recording the experiences of the people who have lived and worked on the river or simply been drawn to its waters in search of recreation or a jam jar of minnows. O’Mahony has collected their stories. River Voices is filled with stories of the Wye told through the words and photographs of those who have known the river all their lives – ferrymen and ferrywomen, boat builders and bridge builders, rowers and swimmers, anglers and poachers, ghillies and river bailiffs, otter hunters and more. Chaired by Adrian Lambert.
