There are not enough stars to rate this book! I’ve always relished the rain, thunderstorms and had no idea what to expect in this book. I was just thoroughly overwhelmed! I had to read it in small steps so as to absorb what the author was saying and sharing. From the birth of planets, the Garden of Eden, all the ancient Rain Gods --- she just doesn’t stop --- the book includes literature, poetry, popular ads – the federal government’s attempts at controlling rain – the making of umbrellas, the rivers, storms – dust storms …. And a tree that grows on nothing but rain….an absolutely breathtaking exquisite history of RAIN, its people and their cultures! "I saw raindrops on my window, joy is like the rain................."
