Summary
The series' first three episodes, based on Marc Reisner's groundbreaking book, Cadillac Desert, delve into the history of water use and misuse in the American West, exploring the extremes of triumph and disaster, heroism and intrigue, bitter rivalries and strange bedfellows that dominate this little-known chapter of our history. The final episode, drawn from Sandra Postel's book, Last Oasis, examines the global impact of the technologies and policies that came out of America's manipulation of water, demonstrating how they have created the need for conservation methods that will protect Earth's water for the next century
