Synopsis

Waterfalls by Patricia Corrigan

From Venezuela's Angel Falls, Earth's highest, to Victoria Falls, the smoke that thunders, here is an outstanding survey of the world's top 10 waterfalls. Detailing locations, sources, size, volume, and appearance, Waterfalls in addition includes material about each waterfall's geologic makeup, history, local climate, and people. Author Patricia Corrigan includes intriguing facts on other notable waterfalls, such as California's 400-foot Whiskeytown Falls, only discovered in 2005.
