River Stops Here

Saving Round Valley, A Pivotal Chapter in California’s Water Wars

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»
