To recap what the book is about: This timely collection retells stories from mythology and folklore to focus on the need to protect,  conserve and value water.

Well-known writers draw upon the oral traditions of Ivory Coast, China, India, Greece, Australia, North America, Spain, Nigeria, Botswana and places beyond names to reflect upon an intrinsic connection, while the pictures are inspired by the rich, visual representations of water across cultures.

Together with interesting facts and a time line from earliest times, this book makes a creative plea to readers of all ages to treat water, and, by extension, all life, with respect.
