Written in Water Messages of Hope for Earth's Most Precious Resource by Irena Salina

Authors tell of such tragedies as water slavery, drought, or contamination, as well as their own professional struggles and successes in pursuit of freshwater solutions.


Of all the environmental concerns we face, threats to freshwater rank highest on the list.


The book s central message, that water conservation is not about scarcity but rather its careful use and fair distribution, comes through in a number of sober but optimistic calls to action.
