Summary
The second episode of the Cadillac Desert series based on Marc Reisner's book. This episode charts the dramatic transformation of the Colorado River from a wild desert waterway with a mind of its own into the most controlled, litigated, domesticated, regulated and over-allocated river in the history of the world. From the heroic construction of the Hoover Dam during the Great Depression to the bitter political and environmental battles over the potential damming of the Grand Canyon, this program illustrates how the Colorado became so impounded and diverted that by 1969 it no longer reached the ocean. The Cadillac Desert series relates the story of the epic quest for water and the role it has played in the vast transformation of the American West and many parts of the world.
