“Till I End My Song recalls Gibbings at peace: in his cottage and garden in Berkshire village and his wanderings along the beloved river nearby.  He notes all the waterside life, the bridges, locks and weirs, the historical associations, and local legends.  His obvious affection for the ‘Sweet Thames’ is a theme that Robert Gibbings made his own, and his obvious love for it imparts a lyrical quality to his descriptive writing and makes it an easy matter for him to share with the reader his own enthusiasm for and wide knowledge of its natural history.”
