Publisher Summary

This breathtaking journey along the most important rivers in the world takes us from the Nile to the Amazon, the Mekong Delta to the Mississippi, the Murray to the Waikato. Our seas and rivers tell a compelling story about our planet. Through tracking the life source of people, animals and the land itself, Peter Goes brings alive our history and our lives today. Each illustration includes major events and historical figures connected with its river, but also favorite stories and icons. This absorbing, playful book shows who we are, how we live and the myths we weave around our people and places.

This book is so interesting and so informative and so well-designed. It’s the kind of book you feel like you could just open to any page and display. It’s less of a read-straight-through book and more of a pick-up-and-read-sometimes book, which I think is really fun.
