About this book

Compelling story of the fight to save Mono Lake, the ancient inland sea in the eastern Sierra near Yosemite National Park which has been steadily drained to supply water to ever-thirsty Los Angeles.
`A rich, absorbing, and illuminating account of one of the longest and most-fiercely contested conservation battles in US history - and that rare one (especially in these times) with a happy ending.' Marc Reisner, author of Cadillac Desert.
