Reviews for Becoming Water


This quiet unassuming little book contains a wealth of knowledge about Canada's glaciers, chronicling their origin, and how they changes and contribute to global change. Included are the myths and legends told about glaciers, as well as how scientific data is collected and interpreted for use in dealing with our changing environment. There are lots of footnotes explaining terms as well as charts, diagrams, maps and photographs as well as suggestions for things to do and questions to ask about glacier melt and global warming.—BC Books for BC Schools, 2014-2015


Fascinating and foreboding. Michael Demuth artfully weaves science, myth, and poetry into a riveting story that will send an icy shiver down the spine of anyone who professes to love Canada, mountains, or Nature.—David R.
