Summary
  • Journeys to four major river systems of the world to investigate the environmental problems facing those whose lives depend upon the health of their river. The Mississippi: Upstream towns are ravaged by periodic floods, while the health of the river's fishery is threatened by the loss of nutrient-rich sediments. The Amazon: Brazilian fisherman struggle to make a living as aquatic life in the world's mightiest river is affected by deforestation. The Jordan: In the arid landscape of the Middle East, availability of water is determined as much by politics as by the environment. The Mekong: On a waterway that sustains people from six different nations, the Vietnamese are affected by upstream development and an economic boom
