Product Details


Watershed has all the makings of a social thriller. Two FBI agents turn up dead in a local lake and a suspicious young Indian woman shows up soaking wet at the black hydrologist’s cabin door. Everett keeps the storytelling terse
and intense, while at the same time broadening the scope of the book, moving into the history of U.S. Indian treaty making and into the science behind the search for water and the pathos of reservation life. In this novel about water and the struggle for a life free of injustice, the mix doesn’t just work, it flows.’–Alan Cheuse, National Public Radio

‘Precise and important, Watershed is a book about honesty, and how to live with dignity in the presence of betrayal. It is a story we need; it contains a code of action for the present and unfortunately for the near future. It is mercifully funny, as well.’–Rick Bass, author of Where the Sea Used to Be
