Rivers and their sources have captured the human imagination for centuries. Their special potential for both mystery and commerce has inspired writers, artists, scientists, and politicians throughout history. In both literature and art, riverscapes have traditionally been seen as more than simply geographic: their psychological and metaphysical aspects have often provided a source of myth.
