Book DescriptionTracing the transformation of the Colorado delta by irrigated agribusiness through the twentieth century, Ward draws on untapped archival resources from both sides of the border to offer a new look at one of the world's most contested landscapes. He explores the rapid development of the region, examining the ways in which politics and international relations created a garden in the Mexicali, Yuma, and Imperial Valleys while simultaneously threatening the life of the Colorado River.
