Book Club: The Dreamt Land: Chasing Water and Dust Across California

April 15, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

The Dreamt Land: Chasing Water and Dust Across California
By: Mark Arax (2019)


Californians have redirected rivers, drilled ever-deeper wells, and built higher dams, pushing the water supply past its limit.  The Dreamt Land weaves reportage, history, and memoir as Arax travels California to explore the one-of-a-kind water distribution system, built in the 1940s-1960s, that is straining to keep up with the state’s relentless growth.  Arax describes the land and the people who have worked it – from gold miners to wheat ranchers to small fruit farmers and today’s Big Ag. Co-sponsored by the Sacramento County Bar Association.
