Summary
The author details the dynamics in the struggle of private interests and public institutions to cooperate in the taming of the Colorado River.The Great Depression further constricted private capital available for large-scale reclamation projects, but the New Deal entered into the effort. Following the precedent-setting Tennessee Valley Authority, the Lower Colorado River Authority resulted in a system of dams, reservoirs, and hydroelectric power stations."--Cover
