This collection of twelve essays brings together some of our most interesting contemporary writers to discuss rivers from a variety of perspectives. While some of the pieces are closer to memoir or short stories, others offer beautiful nature-writing and all of them agree on one point: rivers shape our lives, physically and emotionally, and access to them is essential, almost medicinal. The observations of the contributors are full of care and appreciation both for the beauty of rivers and for the role they play in their lives.
