Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lively primer on the region's most precious and scarce resource, drawn from the pages of the newspaper that sets the standard for coverage of environmental issues in the West.

Book News Annotation:

Reprints 48 articles from the Paonia, Colorado biweekly newspaper reporting on specific events and general trends relating to the American west's most precious material. They begin with an account of the 1983 Colorado River floods that nearly destroyed Glen Canyon Dam and proceed through the water quests of Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Phoenix, and Tucson. Other articles concern the salmon crisis, federal and urban water projects, Native American water rights, watershed restoration, and water management.
