Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


Hal Crimmel has brought scientific research together with the experienced voices of environmental social scientists, humanists, and activists to provide a broad perspective on Utah water issues. The matters discussed are relevant beyond this one state, as similar conditions and concerns-especially over supply and demand in the face of demographic and climate change-exist throughout the West. Some of the essays are scientific and analytical; others literary and personal. Together they draw attention to problems that Utah residents and legislators must address but also emphasize ways to build solutions. Desert Water will help citizens, policy makers, and anyone interested in Utah's water supply and use understand the real challenges-and ethics-involved in managing this vital, finite resource. By increasing awareness, these essays should create a sense of urgency for finding workable solutions.
