    I received this book back when I was in the Nevada Naturalist program It is a good introduction to the life cycle of water and the pictures are beautifully done in watercolors

    Clive Dobson's lovely watercolor illustrations are worth 45 stars easily But someone owes me an apology for the text Either the Hennepin County Library System mistakenly filed a mid grade nonfiction book in the adult nonfiction section or Gregor Gilpin Beck thinks his adult readers have the intellectual sophistication of fifth graders The line between introductory and grossly oversimplified wavers and Gilpin Beck too often places his text on the grossly oversimplified side to say nothing of the fact that only the first half of the book is directly about watersheds

    A good all round introduction to watersheds how they are defined how we use and abuse them the effect of pollutants and excessive nutrients on auatic ecosystems lake eutrophication and damsA uick easy read obviously written for school students but still interesting The beautiful watercolour illustrations are probably the best part of this book; I'll be referring back to this book just for artistic inspiration
