You're heading the right direction -- but definitely need more information. You also need to delete the extraneous information.
The Tigris, Euphrates, Nile, Yellow, and Indus Rivers all have fertile land around them. Ancient peoples first learned to farm in these regions. Because of annual flooding and irrigation systems, these people grew more food than they could get by their previous hunting-and-gathering economies. When people settled down to farm, not everyone was needed to supply food. Some people were then free to develop literature, laws, and government. These rivers were the centers of our earliest civilizations.
