The courses of the great rivers recount the history of the Earth and mankind. This book is dedicated to 25 of the world's longest, most important rivers, from the Ganges, Mekong, Tigris, and Euphrates to the Nile and Amazon, from the Mississippi to Danube. This lavish volume aims to portray them as never before. It alternates aerial and panoramic photographs with detailed close-ups and hidden views that instil in the reader the sights and impressions that can be enjoyed when travelling along these great rivers from their sources to their estuaries. Historic photographs and archival documents make it possible to relive the decisive moments in the evolution of individual watercourses; enthralling narratives describe the characteristics and location of each river.
