About this book

Documents two hundred years of land-use patterns on Colorado's Front Range and their wide-ranging effects on river ecosystems.

Wohl masterfully combines scientific knowledge, historical analysis, and a passion for mountain landscapes in a compelling look at what humans have done to rivers and what we need to do to restore and protect them. Sandra Postel, director, Global Water Policy Project, and author of Pillar of Sand: Can the Irrigation Miracle Last?"
