Olga Pastuchiv is a children's book author, painter, and commercial illustrator. Whether working on a fishing boat in Greece or as a landscape gardener in New England, Olga is always painting.

This story will resonate with everyone who splashed in a stream as a child.--Paul T. Zeph, Former President, North American Association for Environmental Education
If a river could talk, it would sound like Riparia.
A wonderful, empowering story for children who will inherit the rivers.
