Here is the definitive history of the development of the Colorado River and the claims made on its waters, from its source in the Wyoming Rockies to the California and Arizona borders where, so saline it kills plants, it peters out just short of the Gulf of California. Ever increasing demands on the river to supply cities in the desert render this new edition all too timely. Philip Fradkin has updated this valuable book with a new preface.

From the Back Cover:

Here is the definitive history of the development of the Colorado River and the excessive claims made on its waters from its source in the Wyoming Rockies, to the California and Arizona borders, to a point just short of the Gulf of California in Mexico where it evaporates in the sand. Ever increasing demands on the river render this new edition all too timely. Philip Fradkin has updated this valuable book with a new preface.
