Simon Scoones is a Heinemann-Raintree author.Review:
"Excellent photographs and simple relevants maps enliven and reinforce two strong texts, and the 'theme' idea works well, enabling the books to be read in series as well as in parallel. It seems we can also look forward to the Nile, Rhine, Mississippi and Yangtze" -- Books for Keeps 20030901
