'Students of environmental science, ecology, geomorphology and civil engineering will all benefit from this textbook.' Water Bulletin 'After reading it, I pondered for a long time over what made it good and finally concluded that in this case it was the whole instead of the parts. The text is very well written, easy to read and comprehend, interesting in its presentation, practically void of mathematical equations, and contains an excellent reference listing of over 500 publications. in conclusion, I highly recommend this book for anyone working in the water resource field who esires a better understanding of large river systems. All of us can learn from this book, and it will become a valuable addition to one's library, used frequently, and will not sit gathering dust.'
