"A photographic celebration of water and its many roles in the human and natural world. With 100 glorious full-color photographs, this is a window on the world of water: oceans, mighty rivers, and snow-capped mountains; and everyday scenes of people interacting with water- filling buckets, boiling noodles, and jumping streams.
The lyrical and informative writing draws upon literary, historical, and folkloric sources about all aspects of water, from natural and biologic to the sociological and political implications of water usage and shortage, including current information about dams and privatization battles."
