Narrator Tia Rider's distinctly youthful voice and positive tone resonate throughout this optimistic audiobook. Rider delivers Schwartz's thoughtful text with just the right pace and emphasis. Seeking solutions to the planet's water issues, Schwartz takes the listener on a remarkable journey beginning in a remote corner of Zimbabwe and traversing the globe, with stops in Australia, Brazil, California, and Texas. The author seeks methods for improving water storage for the purpose of holistic land management, as identified through her own research, which includes discussions with scientists and activists. She even learns lessons from beavers. Her reporting on water harvesting, dew collecting, and plant and soil management strategies leaves the listener believing that there might be "hope for a thirsty world," as the subtitle promises.
