This non-fiction, family history narrative should appeal to a general audience. Story begins with the emigration of my eight great-grandparents from northern Europe and ends with my parents during World War II. It intertwines highlights from each character's life story against a historical backdrop--immigration in general, homesteading in Nebraska, oil drilling in 1915 Burma, the 1946 shipping of "war brides" to America, etc. In describing the lives of my ancestors, I bring up sociological and public health topics--maternal mortality, pre-marital sex, tuberculosis, alcoholism, sibling rivalry, dating in the 1920s, problems of stepmothers, etc. I have used family members to illustrate the human condition and produce a riveting story. I believe it will inspire, educate, and entertain.

The West without Water

What Past Floods, Droughts, and Other Climatic Clues Tell Us about Tomorrow

Author: B. Lynn Ingram,Frances Malamud-Roam

Publisher: Univ of California Press

ISBN: 0520954807

Category: Nature

Page: 280

View: 7885

The West without Water documents the tumultuous climate of the American West over twenty millennia, with tales of past droughts and deluges and predictions about the impacts of future climate change on water resources. Looking at the region’s current water crisis from the perspective of its climate history, the authors ask the central question of what is "normal" climate for the West, and whether the relatively benign climate of the past century will continue into the future. The West without Water merges climate and paleoclimate research from a wide variety of sources as it introduces readers to key discoveries in cracking the secrets of the region’s climatic past. It demonstrates that extended droughts and catastrophic floods have plagued the West with regularity over the past two millennia and recounts the most disastrous flood in the history of California and the West, which occurred in 1861–62. The authors show that, while the West may have temporarily buffered itself from such harsh climatic swings by creating artificial environments and human landscapes, our modern civilization may be ill-prepared for the future climate changes that are predicted to beset the region. They warn that it is time to face the realities of the past and prepare for a future in which fresh water may be less reliable.
