His book manuscript, Imperial Valley: Nature, Agribusiness and Workers on the California Borderland, 1900-1940, is under contract with Texas A&M University Press, Connecting the Greater West Series. He will be speaking on his second book project, which examines the political, economic and environmental implications of the distribution of water along the Imperial-Mexicali Valley borderlands and the Colorado River delta from 1900 to 1940 and how the Water Resources Collections and Archives have contributed to his work.
