If you were to look at our planet from above, you would see that it is interwoven with rivers like so many ribbons. Some of these rivers are wild, some long, fast-flowing, deep or shallow. Water-lovers and reluctant swimmers alike are sure to be fascinated by characteristics of the world’s rivers.
What do they look like? Who makes a home in them? What do they flow past? Which rivers are of vital importance to humanity? Which are crystal clear, and which gleam with all colours? Which are considered sacred? Open this book and unfold its six maps to embark on a grand expedition along the world’s most interesting rivers, by kayak, dinghy and other boats besides.
