Rivers In Fact And Metaphor

Jul 6, 2018

Rivers are powerful things, in the physical world and in our imaginations. 

But do you really understand where rivers come from and how their courses are set?  Sean W. Fleming, a geoscientist and a bit of a poet, considers rivers both as bodies of water and as metaphors. 

Fleming's book is Where the River Flows: Scientific Reflections on Earth's Waterways

He visited last year, and we revisit the interview here.
