Synopsis

Living Beside a River by Ellen Labrecque

This book takes a simple look at what it means to live by a river. It examines basic geographical features, why people choose to live there and the risks people might have because of living by a river, such as flooding. The book also looks at how people adapt to living by rivers and the different things both adults and children do in their daily lives, from getting a boat to travel places to going swimming!
