John Fleck and Eric Kuhn weave together two narratives; one is a narrative of place, as the hydrology of the Colorado River shifts, capitulates, and finally collapses due to westward expansion. The second is a narrative of time, as people waste precious days, months, and years haggling over their slices of water—without ever asking just how big the pie is that they are fighting over.
