Cadillac Desert - The American West and its Disappearing Water

Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water - Marc Reisner

Caddilac Desert, by Marc Rieser, gives the reader a fantastic and detailed look at the development of water resources that fueled the expansion of the cities of the American West.  Filled with information and easy to read, we get a look at the political, economic and ecological conflicts over the past 50+ years as cities in the LA Basin, Phoenix and elsewhere, fight over shrinking water resources to supply their rapidly growing populations.   I whole heartedly recommend this to anyone who is looking to delve into the past, present and possible future of our "water wars"
