Summary

Where the Water Goes traces the flow of the Colorado River from its headwaters in the Colorado Rocky Mountains to its terminus at the Gulf of California in Mex­ico. Part road-trip documentary, part memoir, and part geopolitical and hy­drology lesson, author David Owen's book follows the historical and geographic course of the river, the water it carries, and the lives that depend on it.
