Like many others, I found this book too impenetrable for my non-academic brain. While I'm sure it's a worthwhile subject, more specialized minds than mine will have to judge.

A well documented presentation of the effects of the Pick-Sloan plan on the Indian Reservations of the Dakotas.Written so a layman can understand. Another bureaucratic government project that has taken away from our Native Americans.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in history from this time. It's very thorough and, being Canadian, taught me a lot about the Indians of this particular part of the U.S. An intriguing read indeed!

A very interesting topic, and I am glad that I stuck with the book. However, it is a very academic book, and is not geared towards the casual reader. A lot of discussion of court cases, legislation and political wrangling. To the author's credit it is well put together and is a good, if not easy read.

Excellent, almost text book in its approach to a water plan that covers several states and hundreds of miles of the Missouri River. The book is about this huge project, and the last chapter discussed what has happened in the years since the start. Any one who likes history of lives in the Missouri valley will find this of interest.

I wanted to read this book because I am from the Midwest and interested in the ecology and politics behind water rights but it was too academic for me. Some human interest bits to lighten it up would have made it an easier read and more people would have gotten some good information.

This book was a little too scholarly for me. There is certainly a meaningful and important story told here, but I have to admit I would have liked it better if it had been a little more "easy reading". Serious students of Native American history should have this on their must-read list. For someone who just "enjoys" nonfiction like I do, it's not an ideal book.
