Michael Pollard is the author of the Rivers of Life series, which also includes The Nile.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6AThe Amazon describes the second longest river in the world, which rises in the Andes of southern Peru and flows 3902 miles to the Atlantic. Pollard also discusses the threats to the rain forest. The Nile gives the history of the region and the importance of the annual floods. Both titles address the future and how important environmental concerns are to these regions. Two or more colorful photos appear on each double-page spread. These books are more current than the "Rivers of the World" series (Raintree/Steck-Vaughn, 1993) and are aimed at slightly older readers, but they lack sufficient maps to show the location of places mentioned and pronunciation guides.
