For twenty-five years John Archer has studied water in all of its many forms, immersing himself in its mysteries, legends and rituals. His journey led him to temples where water is worshipped as living deity, to hot volcanic springs, thundering waterfalls and sacred pools hidden deep in forests. John has drunk the same water dinosaurs drank in the Jurassic swamps, sucked the dew from grasstree flowers at down, and sipped the sulphurous healing waters of Sukayu in the mountains of northern Japan. The Wisdom of Water distills John?s observations, insight, adventures and experiences with water and helps us understand why water is precious beyond imagining. After reading The Wisdom of Water, your relationship with water will never be the same again. Table of Contents The treasure house of innumerable secrets ? The waters above ? The gift of rain ?
