Tershia d’Elgin is a social activist with deep Colorado roots and a special interest in water policy, water conservation, and the tension between agricultural and metropolitan claims on water. A San Diego–based writer and water resources consultant, she also oversees a working farm on the South Platte River in Colorado with her family.

Thank you to the Tattered Cover Book Store for a lovely talk and signing with Tershia d'Elgin, author of The Man Who Thought He Owned Water

On the Brink with American Farms, Cities, and Food

Not until the epic 2013 Front Range flood inundated both our farmhouse and Boulder did my manuscript and I wash into University Press of Colorado.
