The Story of Water : Source of Life, Paperback Book


Water shapes our landscapes and sustains life on Earth.

It also influences our emotions and inspires imagination and creativity.

Yet we take it for granted, treating it as a convenience or for cleansing.

In this comprehensive new book, Alick Bartholomew argues controversially that water is the medium of communication between all living organisms.

He suggests that only through understanding water's true role in Nature can we begin to live responsibly and sustainably. The book covers all aspects of water, from water in the cosmos and solar system, through the Earth's water cycles, to water in our bodies and in plants.

It goes on to consider the larger picture as well: water's cosmic role, the memory of water, and its crucial relationship to the quantum field.

Finally, the author addresses the future: the global water crisis and how to access the best quality of living water for human health. This is a serious but popularly-written illustrated book which offers an original and fascinating study of water as a vital dimension that interconnects all life on Earth.
