It includes stories on the importance of water in our lives, not only for drinking but also how we find it and what happens to our crops when we donít have enough of it. There is also a story on the aesthetics of water, told through an ancient Chinese painting of a river scene. The final section of this book highlights scientistsí investigations of natural phenomena, including a history of weather forecasting.
