Cambridge MA: Harvard University Press, 2006. Small quarto, colour photographs, dustwrapper.
Tells the diverse stories about people in very hot, very cold, or very high places, who spend their lives collecting, chasing, piping, and trapping the water. In a world of finite resources, where the struggle for shrinking sources of water intensifies daily, these stories - collected over three years by photographers, writers and scientists from four continents - are a source of hope and wonder. The book includes an extensive gazetteer with eco-tourism and travel information, organisations and charities to further awareness of the vast array of life carried on precariously yet richly on the dry lands of earth.
