This breathtaking journey on the world’s most important rivers, seas and oceans tells the story of our planet through cultures, myths, icons and history. It takes us from the Nile to the Amazon, the Mekong Delta to the Mississippi, the Murray to the Waikato.
Each map is full of fascinating facts about nature, culture and history, with major events and historical figures alongside favourite stories and icons.
As the life source of people, animals and the land itself, the world’s waterways tell a compelling story about our history and our lives today. This absorbing, playful book shows who we are, how we live and the myths we weave around our people and places.
A non fiction book for children and all ages.
