From the back cover:
"Open this book and take a journey through the ages. Travel back in history to discover how people have developed and changed their environment over the centuries.
River Through the Ages tells the story of rivers and the people who lived by them and traveled on them. Beginning in prehistoric times, we follow the development of rivers as they are visited, crossed, and used by Stone-Age hunters, Celts, Romans, Vikings, and then Normans. Modern bridges and dams are built as we arrive at the present and take a look into the future."
This book added great perspective to our World History studies.
