About this book

Fascinating portrait of one of the world's greatest natural wonders, weaving together the wildlife and social history of the longest river in the world. From ancient Epypt, it takes a modern journey upstream as the river splits into its two main arms, the White Nile and the Blue Nile. Among the landmarks featured is the spectacular Blue Nile gorge - Africa's Grand Canyon. The book also follows in the footsteps of the great Victorian explorers who raced to solve the riddle of the river's source.
