    Writer and artist Margie Crisp has traveled the length of Texas’ Colorado River, which rises in Dawson County, south of Lubbock, and flows 860 miles southeast across the state to its mouth on the Gulf of Mexico at Matagorda Bay.

  • The Untold Story of the Lower Colorado River Authorityby John Williams; Andrew Sansom

    Texas A&M University Press 2015; Not Available

    Arguably, no other institution has transformed the heart of Texas like the Lower Colorado River Authority.

It also brought hydroelectric power—and with that,... more...

    Texas A&M University Press 2012; US$ 30.00

    When George Bristol first saw the mountains surrounding East Glacier, Montana, in the early summer of 1961, he was, in his own words, awed to his depths.

This same love affair would lead Bristol to become a crusader for America’s national parks and,... more...

    Texas A&M University Press 2014; Not Available

    If all the people, municipalities, agencies, businesses, power plants, and other entities that think they have a right to the water in Texas actually tried to exercise those rights, there would not be enough water to satisfy all claims, no matter how legitimate. In Sharing the Common Pool: Water Rights in the Everyday Lives of Texans , water rights... more...

  • Heads above Waterby Robert L. Gulley; Andrew Sansom

    Texas A&M University Press 2015; Not Available

    Since the 1950s, competing interests for use of Edwards Aquifer resources—the primary source of water for more than two million people in south central Texas—were at war.

  • Running the Riverby Wes Ferguson; Jacob Croft Botter; Andrew Sansom

    Texas A&M University Press 2014; Not Available

    Growing up near the Sabine, journalist Wes Ferguson, like most East Texans, steered clear of its murky, debris-filled waters, where alligators lived in the backwater sloughs and an occasional body was pulled from some out-of-the-way crossing. The Sabine held a reputation as a haunt for a handful of hunters and loggers, more than a few water moccasins,... more...

  • Caddoby Thad Sitton; Carolyn Brown; Andrew Sansom

    Texas A&M University Press 2015; Not Available

    In a stunning tribute to one of Texas’ most enigmatic waterways, a veteran East Texas historian and a professional photographer have together created an homage to a lake like no other—half Texas, half Louisiana, a swampy labyrinth of bald cypress and water plants filled with mystery, legend, and a staggering amount of biological complexity. Classified... more...

  • The Blanco Riverby Wes Ferguson; Jacob Croft Botter; Andrew Sansom

    Texas A&M University Press 2017; Not Available

    For eighty-seven miles, the swift and shallow Blanco River winds through the Texas Hill Country. Its water is clear and green, darkened by frequent pools.

Over the last two years, Wes Ferguson and Jacob Botter have paddled, walked,... more...
