Description: Written in simple language (with only a smattering of more technical/scientific terms), this lovely little book explains how streams are formed, and how they eventually evolve into rivers before emptying out into the sea. Also contains information on the various floræ and faunæ found in, under, and alongside the water.
Illustrated with a mix of fantastic paintings and high-quality photographs (both in full-colour). Of particular note is the illustration of Battersea Power Station as it appeared in 1976.
