Some of the sections on how entire strains of Steelhead were forever lost due to the building of Dam's almost brought a tear to my eye.
Idaho author Cort Conley on the construction of Dwarshack Dam:
"There have always been more politicians than suitable damsites. Building the highest straight axis gravity dam in the Western Hemisphere, on a river with a mean flow of 5,000 cubic feet per second, at a cost of $312 million, in the name of flood-control, is the second-funniest joke in Idaho. The funniest joke is inside the visitor center: a government sign entreats, "…help protect this delicate environment for future generations."
