MetadataShow full item record
The Big Hole River brings life to this arid region of southwestern Montana, but its stream flows annually reach detrimentally low levels. The causes behind the low-flow levels are a direct reflection of Euro-American impacts dating back to the early nineteenth century. This is a story of dependency and scarcity, which presently makes the river the source of political conflict.
