BOOK LAUNCH PARTY: Jerry Dennis and Glenn Wolff with

The Bird in the Waterfall: Exploring the Amazing World of Water

Saturday, November 29th, 6PM to 8PM

In paperback for the first time is the new indie-bookstore edition of THE BIRD IN THE WATERFALL, Jerry Dennis's and Glenn Wolff's nationally acclaimed celebration of water in all its beauty and complexity, from the unique structure of its molecule to the elaborate mechanics of the hydrological cycle; from the natural history of oceans, rivers, and lakes to the life histories of the creatures that live in them. Jerry and Glenn explore ice-caps and rogue waves, meandering rivers and subsiding aquifers, a fish that lives only in tiny desert pools and a bird that prefers to nest behind waterfalls. At the heart of the book is a profound appreciation for the nature, science, and lore of water­­ and a passionate appeal for the protection of this most vital of the earth¹s resources.
