Contemporary Culture • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Scientist, conservationist, author, and now audiobook narrator Giulio Boccaletti is certain to win many new admirers with this deeply engaging "biography" of our most vital natural resource. Boccaletti brings a broad perspective and expertise to his narrative, centered around the crucial link between water and the growth and decline of human cultures. Beginning with the first permanent settlements in the Fertile Crescent and moving selectively across time and continents, Boccaletti weaves a fascinating narrative with many implicit lessons for our own ongoing water crises. His rich, measured narration is equal to any professional's, and the examples he presents--America's Tennessee Valley Authority, Egypt's Aswan Dam, and China's Three Gorges Dam, among others--have additional weight and authority for being heard in his own phrasing, tone, and emphasis.
