This is a solid documentary on the Grand Coulee dam, covering the motivations for its construction, the process involved in moving it from concept to completed structure, and its positive and negative effects for communities, the nation, and the environment. I would have liked more information about the planning, design, and construction of the dam, but I'm an engineer, whereas this documentary was surely intended for a general audience.

In my opinion, a central and general lesson from this documentary is that any human project involving such scale and complexity will have both intended and unintended effects, manifesting across time frames ranging from immediate to very long term, both positive and negative, and affecting various stakeholders differently. So whether such a project can be called a 'success' will largely depend on who you ask, and possibly also when you ask.

What a wonderful DVD. If you are interested in Native American things this has a side that is most interesting. You see for yourself the befores and afters. But what caught me the most was the moving picture of the people fishing prior to the dam. That fishing area is gone and will never come back. It changed the peoples lives. They did not get what they were promised. It was a cost for Native Peoples to better the community. The local community never did get better, they were the cost cause it all went to the bigger cities. Very interesting history. Sometimes we dont see the bigger picture.

Leave it to the republicans to do anything in name of jobs regardless of its impact on the environment just like they did not want to pass the plastic bag ban in SoCal since they claimed it would cut few jobs but yet the damage to the environment was justified... OR leave it to the liberals on the west coast to demand that water and power is a right not a luxury that they have to pay for by ruining the environment since they want the water and power but never ever want to address the consequences of getting or producing utilities. After all, liberals are the same group that encourage electric car when infact sixty percent of the power is generated through coal but yet they want to shut down every power plant regardless of coal to nuclear plants as long as it is not in their backyard. When the cats leave, mouses play; Leave it to the human specie to justify their destruction in name of progress.

P.S. The size of those salmons are truly shocking in comparison to today's salmon runs. Shame.
