River of Change : An Environmental History of Climate and Water Management in the Upper Little Colorado Watershed
Journal of the Southwest
Finger and Morehouse provide an "environmental history of climate and water resource management for the Upper Little Colorado watershed in northeastern Arizona." They touch briefly on ancient and modern history, but mostly focus on the century between 1850 and 1950. They describe how communities sought to manage the water, specifically focusing on the practices of people in the Mormon colonies who were the first group of people to use this area widely for agrarian purposes.
