Rivers have acted as cradles for civilization and agents of disaster; a river may be a barrier or a highway, it can support trade and sediment, culture and conflict. This Very Short Introduction is a celebration of rivers in all their diversity. Geographer Nick Middleton covers a wide and eclectic range of river-based themes, from physical geography to mythology, to industrial history and literary criticism.

Its a a true story and very heart touching.. Yet the story telling style is amazing. interspersed wth quotes from famous authors.
the literary knowledge and writing style of Paul are impressive. his medical skills are unmatched but most remarkable is his desire to do as much for the society in the short time that he has.

its inspirational and though provoking... yet you cant control your teras..
