About this book

&i;`The best all-round summary I've read yet, anywhere, of how our greed-driven, ever-expanding urban-industrial empire is consuming, wasting, poisoning and destroying not only the resource basis of its own existence, but also the vital, sustainable basis of all life everywhere. This one little book tells the whole story.'&o; Edward Abbey

This slender book brims with wisdom and scholarship. Harold Scarlett, Houston Post "Charles Bowden's Killing the Hidden Waters is the best all-around summary I've read yet, anywhere, of how our greed-driven, ever-expanding urbanindustrial empire is consuming, wasting, poisoning and destroying not only the resource basis of its own existence but also the vital, sustaining basis of all life everywhere. This one little book tells the whole story. In my opinion, Charles Bowden is the best social critic and environmental journalist now working in the Amcrican southwest, a sharp and engaging writer who never lets his cool disgust at our collective stupidity erode his fundamental sympathy for thc actual living, breathing, still hopeful human beings who inhabit this besieged land. I salute him, and I wish him a million readers." Edward Abbey, author of Beyond the Wall and other books
