Reviewed by CBC Reviewer

Stunning photographs in this large and memorable book illustrate the geological dynamics of many rivers in the continental U.S., such as the Colorado, Mississippi, and Green Rivers. The organization and detail make it an ideal source from which to structure students' observations. This book was named an NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2009.

Inspired by the many photos of landforms sculpted by water, readers will be motivated to learn more from the text, a map of continental U.S. landforms, and diagrams. Earth science teachers will want this book (along with a similar award-winning volume called Over the Mountains) to enhance the study of weathering, erosion, and deposition in the development of landscapes in the United States.
