a Story That Stands Like A Dam: Glen Canyon and the struggle for the soul of the West by Russell Martin

In This Classic, award-winning narrative history of the construction of Glen Canyon Dam in the 1950s and 1960s, Russell Martin has captured the individual, cultural, political, and environmental dramas that brought into being the environmental movement we know today. Across the West, calls for the removal of hydroelectric dams constructed during the Bureau of Reclamations grand century of dam-building are being heard. Both because of its impact on ecological processes downstream and its drowning of natural landscapes behind its headwall, Glen Canyon Dam is still - more than thirty years after its construction - at the vortex of a compelling national controversy.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
