USED, GOOD, ex-library, Edgewear, 65 pages. The Nile is the great river of the ancient Egyptians. It is also one of the world's longest waterways, rising in the snow-capped Mountains of the Moon in tropical Africa and providing water for the people of nine countries. In this book we journey from delta to source, examining the importance of the Nile in ancient times and for the people along its banks today. We also look at its wildlife: the part played by the Nile in history; the search for the source; the structure of the Nile system and the many ways, both ancient and modern, that men have devised to control and harness its great power. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, diagrams, maps and graphs.
