About this book

Through the heart of the California desert, the Los Angeles river once flowed past woodland and filled marshes. Now the river is an 80-kilometre, concrete-lined storm drain that politicians from time to time suggest should be painted blue to make it look more natural. Gumprecht studies the evolution of the river and looks at the possible rebirth that could take place.
