The authors recount twelve millennia of history along the
lower San Juan River, much of it the story of mostly unsuccessful
human attempts to make a living from the river's arid and fickle
environment. From the Anasazi to government dam builders, from
Navajo to Mormon herders and farmers, from scientific explorers to
busted miners, the San Juan has attracted more attention and fueled
more hopes than such a remote, unpromising, and muddy stream would
seem to merit.
