Reviews

Running Out is a book for our times - it should have an impact on policy, and become a classic.---John Miles, National Parks Traveler
[Running Out] should be required reading for every environmental scientist.---David Dent, International Journal of Environmental Studies
[Running Out] bursts with passages that linger after reading. . . . haunting.---Christopher Flavelle, New York Times
Lucas Bessire's poignant critique of dramatic groundwater decline in southwest Kansas and resistance to addressing it offers perspective on our failure to confront climate change. . . . This tale on the ebbing of the Ogallala Aquifer is a valuable addition to the literature of aquifer depletion, compelling for its insider's perspective and probing of contradictory human decisions that discount the future for immediate reward.---Dennis Dimick, Cleveland Review of Books
A moving, melancholy, environment-focused memoir.-- "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
