New York: Viking, 1985. Hardcover. First edition. A fine book in a close to fine dust jacket. A couple of nicks to the head of the dust jacket spine. This is an interesting association copy, inscribed by Marc Reisner to western author Ivan Doig. Doig provided a blurb for the book along with Wallace Stegner. Inscribed on a front free endpaper: "For Ivan Doig/ with appreciation,/ from a fan. / All good wishes/ Marc Reisner/ October 1986." This was Reisner's seminal work on water, irrigation and development of the West. An important look at the politics and economics of water development in the arid Western United States. First printings have become uncommonly scarce. Signed by the author.
