About "Requiem for the Santa Cruz": The Santa Cruz River has ebbed, flowed, and flooded its banks for centuries. Yet, as the landscape of southern Arizona changed, so did the river and our understanding of its currents. Dr. Webb and his co-authors take readers on a journey along the history of the Santa Cruz River as it evolves from a flowing river into a resource for groundwater, mining, and the growth of Tucson. These changes have forever altered the unique habitat along the river, making its history a warning of what may happen to other precious rivers if we are not careful to protect them.
