KIRKUS REVIEW

Geography de luxe- this new volume in a series, which includes The World's Great Lakes and The Mysterious Sea, explores thirty odd major rivers of the world. In each case there is geological and historical background, statistical and descriptive data on both river and people. The author includes the Amazon and its tributaries, some other rivers of South America; the nine great rivers of North America; the single river system of Australia; the historically important rivers of Europe; the scenic beauties of Africa's rivers; the stupendous number of rivers of Asia. He has a vivid sense of the adventure of his subject.
