David Owen's "Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River."

The bigger picture of the Colorado River is one full of dependence on nature, reliance on individual visions by states and municipalities —  and a willingness to cooperate among states, even while protecting their own rights.

David Owen, staff writer for The New Yorker, has a new book that explores all of those angles. It’s called "Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River."

He’ll be talking about the book Monday night at 7 p.m. at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, and he joins me.
