about the map of water series:
There is a mythical quality about the Nile. They say that if you drink from its waters you will return to Egypt, but even the best of swimmers fear being in it. Among the spells, rubrics, incantations, words of empowerment, and magical formulae found in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead are at least three chapters devoted to sniffing the air and gaining mastery over the waters of the Underworld.
