Drying Up: River Friend Series Book 1
Tina Bone, author
What is the worst that can happen to a river? That it vanishes, and all its life vanishes with it: the people, the plants, the animals—not just the fish, but the crops, the cattle, the forests, the everything. All are made mostly of water. It is the natural fresh water in the land, derived from rain, which supports and sustains us. By over-abstracting, polluting, and damaging our wonderful, unique rivers and streams, they now support a fraction of the life that they should. This little book is all about the enormous impact our demanding habits have on the delicate ecology of rivers. The worst threat to our environment, even when compared with the loss of rain forests, climate change, and air pollution, is from the loss of fresh water—without which, ALL LIFE disappears!
