 About the Book 

For their water, their power, their wildlife, and their beauty, rivers have always been central to human civilizations. This book looks at rivers all around the world, from a mountain stream in Snowdonia to the mighty Amazon. It explains how they are formed, their growth and decline, what wildlife lives in them, how people use them for food, power, and transportation, and how terribly destructive they can be when in flood.
