The Nile River stretches 4,258 miles (6,853 kilometers) from its mouth on the Mediterranean Sea to its original source, the Kagera River in Burundi. It is the longest river on Earth, although not one with the largest discharge of water by volume. On average, the Nile’s discharge is only 5,500 square feet (5,100 square meters) per second, making it rank far behind the Amazon and Congo Rivers as well as the Mississippi-Missouri-Jefferson system in the United States.

This book describes the Nile and the civilizations that grew up along its banks from Central Africa to the highlands of Ethiopia to the Mediterranean Sea. The book is divided into several sections, beginning with thematic essays that examine key topics and ideas relevant to the Nile, followed by entries covering the geographical features (both natural and human-made such as dams) as well as the peoples and cultures that grew up along the Nile. The final section, excerpts of primary' documents, includes translations of ancient Egyptian texts, accounts of explorers, and modern agreements on the use of the Niles water.
