Smithsonian Atlas of the Amazon (ISBN10: 1588341356; ISBN13: 9781588341358)
ISBN13: 978-1588341358
ISBN10: 1588341356

Summary: From headwaters high in the Andes the Amazon River flows more than 4,000 miles through the world's greatest rainforest, into the Amazon delta, and finally into the Atlantic Ocean. More water moves through the Amazon than any other river in the world; it is a giant hydraulic system that drains almost 40 percent of South America. This extraordinary atlas is the first comprehensive view of not only the Amazon River but also its 13 major tributaries.

More than
150 color maps and nearly 300 vivid photographs provide spectacular views of the river and rainforest. Along the way, the authors explore many intriguing topics such as why some of the Amazon's tributaries have black water, what happens when the freshwater of the Amazon reaches the salty ocean, and why we all should be concerned about the deforestation that contributes to the loss of species biodiversity.

Surely a benchmark in the rising fight for preservation of this mighty river, The Smithsonian Atlas of the Amazon will undoubtedly be the standard source for years to come.
