About this book

A vivid chapter in the history of the California water wars, this book documents state and federal plans to flood the largest, most fertile valley in Mendocino County to send water south to Los Angeles. The eventual success of Richard Wilson, a rancher in Round Valley, to stop the project is the heart of this story. The book features an afterword by Robert Gottlieb and Ruth Langridge.

Media reviews
A tense, fascinating morality tale. - Marc Reisner, New York Times Book Review "The River Stops Here is a great story, chronicles an exciting chapter in California's water wars and offers heartening evidence that a single person, trusting his best instincts, can start a chain of events that overcomes the amassed might of the established powers. In these cynical times, that's a message we all need to hear." - Harold Gilliam, San Francisco Chronicle "The River Stops Here is a triumph - well conceived, elegantly arranged, and eminently fair. In short, the battle against the Dos Rios Dam produced two happy endings, the second of which is this fine book." - Steve Oney, Audubon"
