KIRKUS REVIEW

Robert Brittain shares the fascination of rivers, suppliers of food, power, mineral wealth, stimulators of man's myth-making capacities, posers of military and engineering problems -- and sources of hypnotic beauty and magic flowing through the land- bound world. It is indeed remarkable that the author has found such a wholeness in such disparate elements. His river lore has strong appeal to those concerned with the humanities as well as science --and his book may have some of the sleeper potential of Gods, Graves and Scholars.
