Rivers: From Mountain Streams to City Riverbanks

We rated this book:


Rivers, which are found on every continent, flow through big cities and small towns, huge sections of empty countryside, mountains and valleys, carrying fresh water to farms and forests, in addition to carrying boats and ships that fuel the economy.

This book will carry readers around the world to see many of these magnificent streams, with gorgeous photographs taken in all seasons and at various times of day, from close up or some distance, from above or at the same level, focusing on bridges or waterfalls or lighthouses or islands or anything that helps to tell the story of the particular river.

The photographs are sorted into five sections: North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and Asia and Oceania. Each photograph is accompanied by a short paragraph containing interesting information such as the economic use, the history of the place or structures nearby, or even what the future might bring.

The stunning photographs are certainly the heart of this marvelous book, but the writing is also excellent and well researched. This will be a welcome addition to anyone’s library or coffee table. The inclusion of a few maps showing the rivers would make it perfect.
