Summary

The Nile is the world's longest river and the birthplace of one of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world. This book takes readers along the "River in the Sand." Ancient Egyptians depended on the Nile's annual floods to deposit fertile soil for farming. Today, more than 70 million people still grow crops in the river's basin and fish in its waters.
