Water is beautiful, enjoyable and the source of life. Over four hundred photographs of breathtaking water scenes are presented with one hundred articles by seventy-seven international contributors to help protect water, and by extension our planet, in William E. Marks's "Water Voices from Around the World" (ISBN 9780979304606, Water Voices, Inc., 2007).
Internationally respected authors, politicians, and activists have come together to create one of the most important books ever written about global resource--water. The numerous contributors include recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Stockholm Water Prize. Religious and political leaders, scientists and researchers from around the world provide guidance about humanity's current relationship with water, and how their organizations and governments are protecting freshwater for future generations. Mikhail Gorbachev, Jane Goodall, Kofi Annan, and Leonardo DiCaprio are just a handful of the best-known voices telling their water stories.
All of reality--lives, bodies, brains, even thoughts are direct manifestations of water. Because freshwater is vital to every aspect of existence, "Water Voices from Around the World" is relevant to all.. Human history began in myths of water's role in the universe's creation and its contribution to evolution--"Water Voices" gives new answers and is written to help educate about water and how people can take action to help water create life.
Besides the international water scene, "Water Voices from Around the World" covers subjects such as: Water Philosophy; Water Wars; Water & Peace; Water Healing; plight of the Polar Bear; a new definition for our hydrologic cycle; endangerment of whales and butterflies; history of wave surfing and ocean gods in Hawaii; Notre Dame as a sacred water healing center; Angkor Wat's creation as a water worship center; the history and current condition of today's ocean salmon; Water's Mysteries; Stepwells of India; the Middle East; evolution of Mexico City and Mexico's pyramids; the Great Lakes; Russia's Lake Baikal; Water's Memory, and so much more!
Mesmerized by the incredible photographs with educational captions, readers will find it difficult to put the book down; they will want to read about the beautiful places depicted as they learn about how water is supplied and cherished around the world. Water's importance will never again be dismissed by anyone who reads this beautiful, informative publication. Critics agree--the world's largest international book competition by Independent Publishers honored "Water Voices from Around The World" with the 1st Place Gold Award as the book, "Most Likely to Save the Planet."
