The client at Horseshoe Bend, Arizona.

If corporations can have the rights of people under the law, why not rivers?  The question made sense to Will Falk, and he answered it yes. 

Falk is a lawyer, and he got to represent the Colorado River in a lawsuit.  So he spent time along the river, in something of a conversation with it. 

Falk tells the story in his book How Dams Fall.  He visits to talk about his journey along the river and into the courtroom.  

Will is on a tour of Western Oregon; he'll be at the Roseburg library Thursday (March 12) at 6:30 and at the Eugene Garden Club Friday (March 13) at 6:30.
