About the Author

Peter Goes lives in Belgium where he works as a freelance illustrator. He was also worked as a stage manager and studied animation at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent, Belgium.


History, science, and geography meet the beauty and creativity of old-world cartography in this stunning visual display of the rivers that flow over mountains and valleys, across deserts, on all seven continents, and into the world's oceans. Full-page spreads in vivid jewel tones are illustrated with local culture and legends, native plants and animals, sea monsters, ships, and compass roses, from the banks of the Ganges to the winding Thames, the Loire, the Danube, and the mighty Amazon.--starred, Foreword Reviews

-- "Website"

In an ornate volume, Goes (Timeline) opens with a short exploration of the five oceans before focusing on rivers in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica. Spreads focus on single rivers of significant size, as well as smaller ones in close proximity and those that ultimately merge. Goes succinctly describes each: 'In the east of Russia's Siberia, the Lena is one of the longest rivers in the world.' Spreads show impish figures, along with cultural, geographical, historical, and mythological icons ('The kappa is a mythical water spirit that lives in Japan's rivers and lakes'). The presentation is appropriately fluid, focusing less on individual locations or relative distances and more on the interconnectivity of the world's bodies of water.--Publishers Weekly
