Abstract

John Wesley Powell's Report on the lands of the arid region of the United States (1878) warned of the folly of trying to impose the habits of the humid East on the dry lands of the West. This analysis of the water question in an arid part of California substantiates much, though not all, of the foresight contained in that landmark document on the American West. - (DWG)
