A landscape history, this text explores the central idea of how people's preconceptions and perceptions of a place - in this case, Owen's Valley - influence their interventions on the land. Rebecca Fish Ewan draws on primary sources, oral histories and conversations, offering a story that reaches beyond the tale of water wars with Los Angeles. The poetic essays, illustrated with historical images and Ewan's own photographs of the region, provide a multifaceted perspective on the land, the history and the people of Owens Valley.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A story well told, interwoven with the author's personal history and some fictional accounts based on the lives of those who struggled to wrest a living out of the high desert... The book is dotted with black-and-white photographs, historic and contemporary, some of which are quite beautiful." -- Robert Pavlik, California History Action


"It's a story well told, interwoven with the author's personal history and some fictional accounts based on the lives of those who struggled to wrest a living out of the high desert... It contains fresh insights and perspectives that a landscape architect brings to the subject... A nice size to carry along with you as you create you own memories of a land between." -- Robert Pavlik, California Historical Review
