5. Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West
Author: by Heather Hansman
The Green River, the most significant tributary of the Colorado River, runs 730 miles from the glaciers of Wyoming to the desert canyons of Utah. Over its course it meanders through ranches, cities, national parks, endangered fish habitats, and some of the most significant natural gas fields in the country, as it provides water for 33 million people.
Stopped up by dams, slaked off by irrigation, and dried up by cities, the Green is crucial, overused, and at risk, now more than ever. Fights over the river’s water, and what’s going to happen to it in the future, are longstanding, intractable, and only getting worse as the West gets hotter and drier and more people depend on the river with each passing year.
As a former raft guide and an environmental reporter, Heather Hansman knew these fights were happening, but she felt driven to see them from a different perspectivefrom the river itself. So she set out on a journey, in a one-person inflatable pack raft, to paddle the river from source to confluence and see what the experience might teach her.
6. The Way of the Water Priestess: Entering the World of Water Magic

7. Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River
Author: by David Owen
An eye-opening account of where our water comes from and where it all goes. The Colorado River is an essential resource for a surprisingly large part of the United States, and every gallon that flows down it is owned or claimed by someone.
David Owen traces all that water from the Colorado’s headwaters to its parched terminus, once a verdant wetland but now a million-acre desert. He takes readers on an adventure downriver, along a labyrinth of waterways, reservoirs, power plants, farms, fracking sites, ghost towns, and RV parks, to the spot near the U.S.
Mexico border where the river runs dry. Water problems in the western United States can seem tantalizingly easy to solve: just turn off the fountains at the Bellagio, stop selling hay to China, ban golf, cut down the almond trees, and kill all the lawyers.
But a closer look reveals a vast man-made ecosystem that is far more complex and more interesting than the headlines let on. The story Owen tells in Where the Water Goes is crucial to our future: how a patchwork of engineering marvels, byzantine legal agreements, aging infrastructure, and neighborly cooperation enables life to flourish in the desert and the disastrous consequences we face when any part of this tenuous system fails.
8. LET THERE BE WATER
Author: by Seth M. Siegel
New York Times and Los Angeles Times Bestseller! As every day brings urgent reports of growing water shortages around the world, there is no time to lose in the search for solutions.The U.S. Government predicts that forty of our fifty states-and 60 percent of the earth’s land surface-will soon face alarming gaps between available water and the growing demand for it.
Without action, food prices will rise, economic growth will slow, and political instability is likely to follow. Let There Be Water illustrates how Israel can serve as a model for the United States and countries everywhere by showing how to blunt the worst of the coming water calamities.
Even with 60 percent of its country made of desert, Israel has not only solved its water problem; it also had an abundance of water. Israel even supplies water to its neighbors-the Palestinians and the Kingdom of Jordan-every day. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews, Let There Be Water reveals the methods and techniques of the often offbeat inventors who enabled Israel to lead the world in cutting-edge water technology.
9. Hydroponics Mastery Bible: 6 BOOKS: The Complete Guide to Easily Build Your Sustainable Gardening System at Home. Learn the Secrets of Hydroponics and Boost Your Gardening Skills
Author: by Thomas Green
Learn the Secrets of Hydroponics and Boost your Gardening Skills! Do you want to grow your own food, but lack the space outside? Are you looking for a new challenge where the goal is to provide healthy food for your family?
Do you want to create your very own soil-free garden? If you answered Yes to any of those questions, this book is for you – so keep reading! Among modern methods of growing crops, Hydroponics occupies a special place because of the many benefits it offers.
It is nothing more than means the cultivation of plants without soil but in water. And the water is enriched with nutrients. The history of the emergence of hydroponics is associated with centuries of research by scientists, as a result of which a huge number of experiments were carried out that made it possible to determine the optimal balanced nutritional composition to ensure the vital activity of plants.
As it turned out, the soil environment for crops is not necessary: plants successfully grow and develop if their root system is in contact with an aqueous medium containing all the necessary substances. This fact became fundamental for the development of hydroponics as a new method of crop production.

11. Holding Back the River: The Struggle Against Nature on America's Waterways
Author: by Tyler J. Kelley
A revelatory work of reporting on the men and women wrestling to harness and preserve America’s most vital natural resource: our rivers.The Mississippi.The Missouri.The Ohio. America’s rivers are the very lifeblood of our country. We need them for nourishing crops, for cheap bulk transportation, for hydroelectric power, for fresh drinking water.
Rivers are also part of our mythology, our collective soul; they are Mark Twain, Led Zeppelin, and the Delta Blues. But as infrastructure across the nation fails and climate change pushes rivers and seas to new heights, we’ve arrived at a critical moment in our battle to tame these often-destructive forces of nature.Tyler J.
Kelley spent two years traveling the heartland, getting to know the men and women whose lives and livelihoods rely on these tenuously tamed streams. On the Illinois-Kentucky border, we encounter Luther Helland, master of the most importantand most decrepitlock and dam in America.
This old dam at the end of the Ohio River was scheduled to be replaced in 1998, but twenty years and $3 billion later, its replacement still isn’t finished. As the old dam crumbles and commerce grinds to a halt, Helland and his team must risk their lives, using steam-powered equipment and sheer brawn, to raise and lower the dam as often as ten times a year.

13. Tsunami: The World's Greatest Waves
Author: by James Goff
Oxford University Press
Every year that passes without a tsunami means that we’re just that much closer to our next one. What can we do to ensure we’re prepared when the next catastrophic tsunami strikes? The ferocious waves of a tsunami can travel across oceans at the speed of a jet airplane.
They can kill families, destroy entire cultures, and even gut nations. To understand these beasts in our waters well enough to survive them, we must understand how they’re created and learn from the past. In this book, tsunami specialists James Goff and Walter Dudley arm readers with everything they need to survive a tsunami and maybe even avoid the next one.
The book takes readers on a historical journey through some of the most devastating tsunamis in human history, some of the quirky ones, andeven some that may not even be what most of us think of as tsunamis. Diving into personal and scientific stories of disasters, Tsunami pulls readers into the many ways these waves can be generated, ranging from earthquakes and volcanic eruptions to explosions, landslides, and beyond.
