The River Stops Here: Saving Round Valley a Pivotal Chapter in California's Water Wars Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vivid chapter in the saga of the California water wars, The River Stops Here documents state and federal plans to flood the largest, most fertile valley in Mendocino County to send water south to Los Angeles. The eventual success of Richard Wilson, a rancher in Round Valley, to stop the project is the heart of this compelling story.

Synopsis:

A rancher's stubborn refusal to be flooded out by the Army Corps of Engineers led him to mount an extraordinary crusade against California's most powerful forces of the time--the 60s water lobby. He created a new environmental coalition, helped save the wild rivers of the north coast, and vitally affected the future water policies of the state.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [367]-370) and index.
