James Scott is in the early stages of mapping out a book on “Rivers” and what Homo sapiens has done to them, with a particular focus on the Irrawaddy in Burma/Myanmar. Dr. Scott would ask you and your colleagues the question: “Is it possible to write a book about rivers narrated in the first person… of the river itself.”?  If it is possible, how might it be done?
