Water Gold Soil book

Water Gold Soil: The American River by Sayler/Morris tells the story of a single flow of water in present-day California from origin to end use. Including a short essay by Elizabeth Kolbert, the book brings together a series of narrative text, photographs, and archival images that represent the history of extraction in California and testify to the social and ecological consequences of watershed colonialism. Production details include a diecut tip-on image and foilstamped endsheets.
