This is a great story of perseverence and faith. The farmers there in Oregon and California stood up for their rights and were rewarded by retaining those rights. This is an exciting and revealing story of how they went about it.
As to some contentions that Salmon were dying as a result of that farming...I have looked into it know of no official report attrinuting any Salmon kills in 2001 to the Kalmath Irrigation Project. The principle issue at that time was the sucker fish in the lake, and that issue was later shown to be nothing more than faulty science.
There was a large number of fish that died a year or two later, but scientific investigation and analysis have showed that there was no relation to the Klamath water crisis.
Those farmers have been farming like they for over 100 years. I expect, and am thanksful, that they now may well be doing it another 100 years.
That's what this story is about, and it is well done. Bravo for the farmers of the Klamath Basin and their allies!
Excellently written: an absorbing book. I downloaded the book (which easily and colorfully opens up in Preview on a Macintosh) and discovered that the moral is very clear : that a group working with prayers to the Lord, cell phones, internet connections and courageous Americans will accomplish good, legal, just and right goals. The brave Klamath Americans successfully defended their access to their water. Against whom? Selfish politicians who were taught a clear lesson by the brave Klamath Americans.
I highly recommend this book to students of contemporary politics and American government as well as to people interested in learning how to get things done the right way.

This is a very one-sided account of the 2001-2002 water shortage in the Klamath Basin that basically treats farmers as if they can do no wrong while completely ignoring the scientific studies that followed. Maybe if the author bothered to look at how farmers and fish could coexist rather than simply saying that farmers are exercising their rights, he could have produced a book that was actually worth the paper it was printed on. There is a water shortage in the West and a balance between agriculture and the needs of fish and wildlife needs to be found. Unfortunately, publications of this sort will not bring us any closer to finding that balance. I cannot believe that I wasted time and money on this.

This book is a joke, it's not only bias, but it's incorrect. A lot of the "facts" in it, common sense and a quick Google search proves otherwise. They could still get water, just not the waste of the canal. and they would still get money, many of my rancher friends including myself know that is wasn't a big deal like how the media portrayed it. I give it two stars because it's written in English, and it's published.
