Full of interesting information and beautiful images, new hardback book The World’s Great River Journeys by Nick Dalton and Deborah Stone is out now.

Travelling along rivers allows you to get to the heart of a city, a countryside or a country and the pace of the journey gives you time to immerse yourself in the experience. The World’s Great River Journeys explores some of the most intriguing and beautiful rivers in the world, including continent crossing epics such as the Danube and the Volga, little gems such as the Douro, the rivers of North America including the Mississippi, rivers travelling through spectacular natural landscapes in Africa, the Mekong, the Murray in Australia and the Whanganui in New Zealand.

Divided by continent, the authors describe the route of the rivers from source to end, covering the navigable as well as the non-navigable stretches. Whatever their length or breadth, the rivers offer natural wonders, wildlife, manmade engineering feats, capital cities and historic landmarks, a constant and ever-changing scenery, all to be enjoyed to the full at a leisurely pace.
