Great Rivers of the World
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
A river is more than a waterway: it is a sustainer of life, a means of transport and a cultural signifier. All great cities and civilizations have grown up alongside rivers. This magnificent book charts the course of the 25 longest and most important on the planet from source to sea. Arranged by continent, they include the Rhine, the Danube, the Volga, the Amazon and the Nile, each illustrated by aerial photographs, panoramic views and a map. Slightly off-mint.
