For 15 years, Ridenbaugh Press has published the National Water Rights Digest, about water rights, uses and conflicts around the country. Now we’ve published a summary of what’s going on in all 50 states, in The Water Gates: Water Rights, Water Wars in the 50 States.
Now, Digest editor Randy Stapilus here has wrapped up the increasingly tense water issues around the country, from the use of water by bottlers in relatively wet New England, to the big water supply battle between Georgia, Florida and Alabama, to the long-running (and possibly never-ending) water conflicts and dilemmas in the dry western states.
The Water Gates is available at Ridenbaugh Press and at other outlets including Amazon.com.
The Intermediary: William Craig among the Nez Perce, our latest in Northwest history, is out and available through Ridenbaugh Press and elsewhere.
Lin Tull Cannell, who lives at Orofino near the spots where much of the historical action in the book took place, spent 15 years researching and writing this story of William Craig, who played a pivotal role in the early development of the interior Northwest – in the decades before there was an Idaho, even in the form of a territory. It’s a dramatic story never told until now.
See our Intermediary page for more information.
Ridenbaugh Press has been blogging for what passes for a long time on the Internet – since 1995, when we began posting on Northwest politics. We’ve spread our activities since then, and we’ve been posting on the net about a range of things – book publishing, dog rescue, water rights . . .
Time has come to put up a central portal for all this, and clarify a little what it is we do. What that is, is a little complicated: We provide goods (books and periodicals) and services (book and periodical publishing and editing services). Those falls generally in the main categories you see at the top of this site.
We’ll use this space, the blog component of this site, as an update for what we’re doing. Keep watching this space!
