    Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride (Chasing Water) offers unforgettable journeys down two of the world’s great rivers. The Colorado flows through majestic landscapes but no longer reaches the sea. And the Ganges, India’s sacred waterway, is revered as a god but polluted by the people who worship it.
