Om Bird in the Waterfall

There is nothing in the universe like water. It is unique and beautiful and without it there could be no life on earth. Little wonder, then, that people have always expressed such awe, delight, and reverence for it.The Bird in the Waterfall is a celebration of the wonders of water and the creatures that live in it. While exploring waterfalls and artesian springs, ocean waves and tidal bores, whirligig beetles and torrent ducks, author Jerry Dennis and artist Glenn Wolff address age-old aquatic mysteries: Why do rivers meander? What are the sources of hot springs and geysers? What causes tsunamis and rogue waves? Why is water blueand sometimes green, black, yellow, or red? Why do we gather to watch falling water and crashing surf? Why do we toss coins into fountains?At the heart of The Bird in the Waterfall is a profound appreciation for the magic, music, and poetry of waterand a passionate appeal for the protection of this most precious of the earth's resources.PRAISE:';A passionate appreciation for the magic, music, and poetry of water, and an appeal for the protection of this most precious of the earth's resources.'
