Nile from the Author: Martha Holmes. From the beginning of recorded history, the River Nile has been a blessing in an otherwise barren world, but at first was a mystery. As the centuries passed, explorers braved rapids, swamps, jungles, and disease to push further and further up the river, each time bringing back new clues to its origins. Nile charts the full story of this great river. Beginning with an exploration of the world of ancient Egypt, we then journey upstream as the river splits into its two main arms—the White Nile and the Blue Nile. Finally, we follow in the heroic footsteps of the great explorers as they raced to solve the riddle of the river’s source, deep in the heart of Africa. Abundantly illustrated with color photos and detailed maps, Nile weaves together history and natural history in a fascinating portrait of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders.
