Individuals who overcame their own problems and weaknesses to corral the mighty, once vicious Colorado River. Contents include: how early rice farmers "rustled" water with dynamite and shotguns, how the fight between public and private utilities seems almost as old as electricity, how Governors "Ma" and "pa" Ferguson swapped the state's 100th birthday plum for help in creating the LCRA and more.
