Through tracking the life source of people, animals and the land itself, Peter Goes brings alive our history and our lives today. Each illustration includes major events and historical figures connected with its river, but also favorite stories and icons. This absorbing, playful book shows who we are, how we live and the myths we weave around our people and places.(Marsden Books (NZ) – October 25, 2018)
This title could never do justice to a book like this. The book has geography, history and adventure all rolled into one. Is worth every penny.(Radio Southland, Terry Toner (NZ) – October 24, 2018)

German reviews:
Eine sachliche und sinnliche Reise über Flüsse, Meere und Ozeane ist das illustrierte Sachbuch für Kinder "Flüsse dieser Erde“. Peter Goes Illustrator hat mit satten Farben Landkarten gestaltet, die wie lebendig wirken und in die Kinder sich wirklich gut vertiefen können. (Kulturradio 19/09/2018)
Wasser ist nicht nur Baustein des Lebens, es hat für Menschen zudem eine besondere Faszination. Peter Goes hat sich von dieser Faszination leiten lassen. Vor allem die großen Wasserläufe haben es ihm angetan. Entsprechend dem Thema ist das Ergebnis einfach riesig! (MAGALI HEIẞLER Titel Kulturmagazin 10/09/2018)
