New books focus on the Southwest and water

My wife’s dream was to move to Tucson. We even looked at houses there during one of our two trips to Tucson in recent years. Anyway, the two books reviewed in this article paint a picture of water scarcity and drought for the future. When you really think it over, i.e., how did Phoenix happen, you realize that the Sonora Desert – a land of 100-plus degree weather again and again – is hardly the place to put such a megalopolis.
