Summary:

"Zak Podmore sets out to explore exploited Western rivers -- and some of the most pressing environmental justice issues of our time. After losing his river-running mother to cancer, Podmore disappears into the American West's iconic canyon country to heal. He kayaks down a rare release of water in the Colorado River Delta, investigates uranium tailings on Ute Mountain Ute lands near the San Juan River, and interrogates the treatment of asylum seekers crossing the Rio Grande. Confluence presents an up-close, personal perspective on our responsibility to rivers and to each other." -- from back cover.
