Pete McBride and Jonathan Waterman have done an amazing job bringing attention to the many issues facing the Colorado River through their insightful prose and gorgeous photographs. Their knowledge of water issues and passion for educating is apparent, as they take the reader on a tangible journey down this iconic river. The reality and heartache become all too real. This is powerful read on an important issue, a must-have for anyone that cares about rivers, people, and the environment. A very worthy investment.

Fascinating Photos, Important Book 18 juillet 2011
Par timincarbondale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Peter McBride's book offers not only some of the most visually appealing photos of the Colorado River Basin, it also tells the story of what is happening to our beloved Colorado River. The photos plus the message about the endangered Colorado River pack a one, two punch underscoring the importance of thinking about where our water comes from and where it goes. If you love the west and even remotely understand the importance of water in the west, you need this book.
Outstanding pictures to inspire and inform 18 juillet 2011
Par Jennifer Pitt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you own a copy of Reisner's Cadillac Desert you'll want this too. Peter McBride's photo opus on the Colorado is the first I've seen that tracks the river from the high mountain headwaters all the way down to the sea. McBride's artistry is stunning, and the collection is well edited. Just as impressive is his command of the myriad issues that that make the Colorado River the most loved and litigated in the United States. In both the modest text and the images themselves, McBride and co-author Waterman demonstrate their mastery and love of the subject.

Last year Verlyn Klinkenborg wrote in the New York Times "if we're not nostalgic for water now - in all its forms - soon we will be. We're entering a climatically uncertain world, so perhaps now is the time to visit water, before it is piped, tubed, desalinated, and geothermalized everywhere...Go now." The threats are very real, and many people are working hard to save the Colorado River before it's too late. Even if you can't make a visit soon, you can get your fill in this book.
Bring on the drought ! 1 février 2015
Par R. Parry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you are interested in water issues in the Southwest, this book is for you. The Colorado River has become a perfect symbol of what happens when we ask too much of a limited resource: it disappears. In fact, the Colorado no longer regularly reaches the sea. Dams, irrigation and now climate change have drastically reduced the once-mighty river. Is it a sign of more things to come? The authors take us on a trip down the Colorado River, from the mountains through the resevoirs and into the basins. Approximately 30 million people rely on it's water which flows through 14 coal/gas plants & 107 hydroelectric turbines. Many of our friends browse this 9 x 12 coffee table book because it has has gorgeous pictures on every page and awesome aerial photography (I'd buy it for the many crossover aerial photos alone). Coupled with a few helpful maps, the commentary about water issues facing the Southwest will help you understand why you hear of so much more news about "droughts" and mandated water conservation programs.
The Colorado River, Flowing Through Conflict 26 juillet 2011
Par sage - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is absolutely magnetic featuring artful images blended with a strong educational message regarding the state of this American landmark. The book characterizes the trip from the Colorado River's headwaters to its untimely demise and is full of appealing photographs, some surreal in nature, capturing the sheer power and beauty along its path. The book stirs a gamut of emotions as it strikes the chord of awareness and the need for strong conservation measures to ensure the health and longevity of this important waterway. A meaningful gift - I purchased several for friends. By the way, did anyone catch the photographer's interview recently on NPR? It was equally as impressive.
