Join author Robert Crifasi for a discussion of his 2015 book, A Land Made From Water, which explores the ways the development of water and riparian resources in Colorado changed the face of the Front Range. Discover the events of nineteenth-century Boulder that helped set the stage for water development through the American West. This in-depth conversation will include how settlers planned and constructed irrigation systems, used the court system to establish the appropriation doctrine, and instigated a war against the Native American population to gain control of water resources. Wed 7 p.m.
