Where the Water Goes

Jul 12, 2017

36 million people rely on the Colorado River for water, but how often do they think about what happens downstream? Journalist and New Yorker staff writer David Owen wanted to understand the ecosystem, culture, and politics that surround the crucial waterway, so he trekked from the headwaters to the once-lush, now desert terminus. The result is his latest book, and Wednesday, Owen joins Doug to explain “Where the Water Goes.”

David Owen is a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author of 14 books. This latest is called Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible]
