National Geographic's
Written in Water: Messages of Hope for Earth's Most Precious Resource

In 1993, National Geographic chronicled the story of the clean-up of the Nashua River in its special Water edition. Water resources have become increasingly recognized as a top priority for local and international communities around the globe to assess and protect. With that in mind, National Geographic turned to the world's leading water scientists, authors, and activists to share their thoughts and stories of their work to ensure that there will be enough clean water for all in the future. The result was Written in Water: Messages of Hope for Earth's Most Precious Resource, a collection of essays from world leaders in the field of water supply protection and clean water innovations, including NRWA founder, Marion Stoddart. Other essayists, include Alexandra Cousteau, social environmental advocate and granddaughter of legendary marine scientist Jacques Cousteau; Peter Gleick, environmental visionary and winner of a 2003 MacArthur "genius grant"; Bill McKibben, bestselling author and winner of a Guggenheim fellowship; and Sandra Postel, director of the Global Water Policy Project and National Geographic’s first Freshwater Fellow.
