About the book:

In this classic narrative history of the construction of Glen Canyon Dam in the 1950s and 1960s, Russell Martin has captured the individual, cultural, political, and environmental dramas that brought into being the environmental movement we know today. Winner of the Caroline Bancroft History Prize, Martin's book is available again in a new edition with a revised foreword.

Across the West, calls for the removal of hydroelectric dams constructed during the Bureau of Reclamation's grand century of dam-building are being heard. More than thirty years later Glen Canyon Dam is still at the vortex of controversy, both because of its impact on ecological processes downstream and its drowning of natural landscapes behind its headwall. A STORY THAT STANDS LIKE A DAM is as compelling and relevant today as it was when it was first published.
