On a journey down the Colorado River, David Owen explores how a patchwork of engineering marvels, byzantine legal agreements and neighborly cooperation enables life to flourish in the desert. He traces the Colorado from its headwaters to the river's end, once a verdant wetland but now a million-acre desert. His adventure downriver visits the reservoirs, power plants, farms, fracking sites, ghost towns and RV parks that draw precious water away from the ecosystem. An eye-opening account of where water comes from and where it all goes.
