Description

Finalist for the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association Award

"Marc Weingarten's new book, Thirsty: William Mulholland, California Water, and the Real Chinatown, neatly encapsulates the complex background of civic battles (the so-called "water wars") between L.A. and the Owens Valley that led up to that moment and which helped to create the sprawling megalopolis we live in now."
--LA Weekly

..".for media cognoscenti, the portions about [Harrison Gray] Otis, his soon-to-be-competitor Boyce and an enterprising delivery man named Harry Chandler will provide added enjoyment."
--Adweek
