Description

Humans' fascination with water finds full expression in this stellar collection. Included are writings from Mark Twain, who marvels at the teeming humanity on the Ganges; Henry Stanley, searching for Livingston and discovering instead Lake Albert Edward; as well as selections from A Complete Angler and A River Runs Through It; and more than a dozen other classic works by explorers, adventurers, natural historians, and novelists.

Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.
