This beautifully illustrated text on water phenomena shows how forces become form. Theodor Schwenk shows that the laws governing the subtle patterns of moving water are the same as those perceptible in bones, muscles, and myriads of other natural forms. He illustrates these unifying forces in phenomena such as the flight of birds, the movement of fish, the human sense organs, sound, mountains and deltas, sand patterns, and much more.
