Lucas Bessire, Running Out: In Search of Water on the High Plains

The Ogallala aquifer has sustained life on the American Great Plains for millennia but faces imminent depletion. In his award-winning book Running Out: In Search of Water on the High Plains, anthropologist Lucas Bessire journeys back to western Kansas, where five generations of his family lived as irrigation farmers and ranchers, to try to make sense of this vital resource and its loss. An urgent and unsettling meditation on environmental change, Running Out offers a uniquely personal account of aquifer depletion and the complex layers of law, economics, culture, and history that have shaped the current crisis.
