AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Water tumbles inside clouds, drifts as snowflakes, collects in puddles. Water creeps up the stems of sunflowers and slips down the throats of tigers.

Where does this marvellous liquid come from? How does it behave? Why is it so important? Well-known science writer Meredith Hooper tells the amazing story of water on our Earth. Beginning before the Earth was formed and continuing to the present day, the dramatic narrative explains the nature of water and the water cycle, and the collection between water and the development of life on our planet.
