The Ganges

Library Binding (Raintree July 30, 2003)
For more than 350 million people who live near its banks, the Ganges River represents life. It nourishes and cleans them, helps them travel, and lies at the heart of their religious beliefs. The Ganges has more than a hundred names, but Hindus call it Gangamai, or Mother Ganga. As we travel its 1,558 miles (2,500 km) from the Himalayan Mountains to the Bay of Bengal, we see how the Ganges is used. It is endangered by pollution, and its future is at risk from global warming and water disputes-- but the Ganges remains one of the world's greatest rivers.
