Water is for Fighting Over: and Other Myths about Water in the West John Fleck

Having covered environmental issues in the West for a quarter century, Fleck would be the last writer to discount the serious problems posed by a dwindling Colorado River. But in that time, he has also seen people in the Colorado River Basin come together, conserve, and share the water that is available.  In this fresh take on western water, Fleck brings to light the true history of collaboration and examines the bonds currently being forged to solve the Basin’s most dire threats.
