Thorough, intelligent, accessible. Dr Sansom lays out the background and the issues that must be addressed in Texas if we are to have adequate water resources in the near future. Taught me a lot. I will use this as a reference for years to come.

It was required for a college course, but what a fun read of Texas water! Easy and fast to read. Very much enjoyed, and....learned something too!

This is a good beginner's text to the water issues in the Lone Star State. A great deal of information, and a good reference guide.

Hell of a book. Very well written and lots of data. Should be read by every Texas by the age of 12. Maybe our future would be brighter.
