Book Description

"Often funny, as well as easy to imagine ... To The Last Drop envisions
just how quickly greed and thirst could spark another war between the states."
**** (4 stars)
-- High Times Magazine, April 2009

This is a novel of water, oppression and rebellion, enlivened by a tragic-comic cast from all sides of the conflict whose stories intertwine in unexpected ways.

When a slacker biologist accidentally discovers water in the parched desert of New Mexico, it triggers a war. Texas invades and occupies New Mexico, renaming it "New Texas." A desperate insurgency fights back with a brutal terror campaign throughout the territory.

"To The Last Drop" dramatizes today's global water crisis. This novel illuminates the development of the Southwest, the relationship between occupation and terrorism, and our all-consuming thirst for water.


As Mark Twain put it, "Whiskey is for drinking, and water is for fighting over."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read May 12, 2008
Format:Paperback
Wise paints a picture that's easy to believe: Texas invades New Mexico under the direction of a GW Bush-like bully, complete with a staff that's similar to the administration currently occupying the White House. The new war is all about water rights, and there's no help from D.C., as U.S. armed forces are bogged down in the middle east. Believable characters, good dialog, plenty of humor, and an accurate description of the people and places that make up modern day New Mexico make this a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a go. You'll enjoy this read. May 12, 2008
By Kelly
Format:Paperback
As the story is about war and oppression, I didn't expect to laugh my way through this book. Ponder, reflect, giggle. Ponder, reflect, giggle, snort. My favorite scene takes place in a small town filled with dogs that are lovingly cared for by ordinary folks who understand resistance. Before I got to this scene, I had a dozen other favorite moments.

I did recommend this book to a friend who is teaching her daughter about the politics of water. She feels it is a bit much for a 12-year-old to read on her own. I say kids need to buck up! Only joking. Unless it is a family project, young readers should skip this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book i've read all year November 15, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've read all year. In addition to the great, relevant storyline To The Last Drop is filled with memorable characters and laugh-out-loud dialogue. I could imagine the movie as I read the book. It took me quite some time to finish this book due to my own time constraints but that was okay because it was such a good read that I didn't want it to end.

Nice work Andrew Wice. Highly recommended for those who have an interest in humor, science, the environment, drama, action and politics.

To the Last Drop: A Novel of Water, Oppression, and Rebellion

This novel was very entertaining, timely and educational--all at the same time. I didn't realize the full impact of the fragile geology and impending demise of the aquifers in the Southwest, and I was unfamiliar with the historical references (sometimes comically revealed) and the parallels in the novel. I was most impressed, however, with the boldly drawn and fully realized characters, such as U.S. Armstrong and the Governor, not to mention the motorcyle dudes, slackers, and scientists who people the story. The tale is very cinematic, and descriptions and dialogue are excellent. Hats off to a new writer with an ear for dialogue, an eye for description, and a great storyteller.
