Mark Arax - The Dreamt Land

Book talk and signing – the story of the West’s relationship with water

From a family of Central Valley farmers, writer Mark Arax has seen firsthand the battles over water intensify as California lurches from drought to flood and back again.

In The Dreamt Land, he travels the state to explore the one-of-a-kind distribution system built in the ’40s that’s straining to keep up California’s relentless growth, weaving together reportage, history, and memoir to tell the story of the West’s relationship with water.
