"...historians (and not just geographers and anthropologists) interested in social interactions linking water use, water law, and water policy will find this a satisfying and instructive study. Most importantly, Perramond succeeds in giving a voice to water users who feel that state authorities, engineering experts, and high-priced water lawyers do not understand the cultural dynamics of acequias and small-scale water regimes possessing roots that extend back many generations."

"What immediately sets this study apart from all the rest is that here are the voices of individuals whose lives have been inextricably enmeshed in water rights adjudications for decades. . . . This is an outstanding piece of scholarship, and the author has done a highly commendable job of making this complex subject intelligible to the non-specialist."
