Rivers

A Visual History from River to Sea

History, science, and geography meet the beauty and creativity of old-world cartography in this stunning visual display of the rivers that flow over mountains and valleys, across deserts, on all seven continents, and into the world’s oceans. Full-page spreads in vivid jewel tones are illustrated with local culture and legends, native plants and animals, sea monsters, ships, and compass roses, from the banks of the Ganges to the winding Thames, the Loire, the Danube, and the mighty Amazon.
