Throughout history, we have been drawn to rivers – the lifeblood of our world and our communities – as a source of drinking water, to obtain food, to transport goods and people.
And as a vital habitat for wildlife, for nature, playing an essential role in the ecology of rainforests and wetlands – creating the fabric for life that spreads out and echoes across our lands.
Yet something more as well, more than the practical or the necessary. A sense of affirmation, of the undiluted power and wonder of nature itself. A transcendence in the currents and the flows, that can be felt when touching the surface or inhaling the vast landscapes.
Tales Of A River tells the stories of some of the greatest waterways in the world by experiencing them on journeys from the source to the mouth.
Extraordinary adventures that reflect the people, the history and the nature, at once personal and relatable, inspiring and energizing, filled with the realities and magic that flow through the rivers themselves.
