AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A young boy calls on a mountain to 'cry me a river' and the mountain responds by sending crystal tears that run down and form a beautiful and life-giving river. But as the river leaves the mountain it gathers pollutants until it empties its poisons in the sea and the mountain asks the boy, in turn, to cry for the river.'
