Description: In its natural condition the Sacramento Valley flooded annually and an inland sea formed during the rainy season, draining slowly away by the summer months. The effort to control the flooding and exploit the rich valley for agriculture has resulted in an intricate, thousand-mile system of levees and drains. Robert Kelley documents and analyzes the process and the widely-diverging ideas about how best to reclaim the Valley from flood -- a process equally relevant to riverine areas across the country, many of which experienced serious flooding in 1997. A new foreword by David N. Kennedy discusses the Sacramento Valley floods of 1997.

"A valuable study, rich in scholarly detail and documentation... of America's use -- and abuse -- of natural resources in the western United States". -- Thomas Jablonsky, Southern California Quarterly
