Fiery Heart. Marcus W. The Gift. Lynne Duvall. Then came the same natural phenomenon that historians suspect pushed the Hohokam from the Valley: drought. The Salt River could no longer provide enough water for all the canals and thousands of acres of crops withered. Like the Hohokam, hundreds of pioneers left the desert village. To thrive, Phoenix needed a dam that would collect and store river water in the mountains to the north and east. The federal government also bought out the ditch companies and connected all the canals into one system.
Roosevelt Dam provides both a reservoir and hydropower. The Roosevelt Dam began supplying hydroelectric power to a copper mine in These dams do not generate hydropower.
The Persistence of Vision (short story)
After World War II the Salt River Valley was rapidly turning into an urban center that needed water for residential customers, rather than solely ranchers and farmers. In , the City of Phoenix established the first contract with SRP to divert water from its canals to treat and deliver to homes. By , SRP was delivering 55 percent of its water to Valley cities. The reservoir can hold 1.
The Short, Swift Time of Gods on Earth
SRP serves water to a square-mile area and electricity to more than 1 million customers. The total SRP system today is about 55 percent full — just about the same as one year ago. The bright spot? Anthologies are, by their very nature, provocative. Why was this story included, the reader wonders, why was that one left out? When the title declares its contents to be the "Best" there are bound to be even more quibbles raised. Let's just assume that what the editors really want us to understand is that there are some very fine short stories between these covers.
If so, they're right.
It also goes a long way towards justifying that "Best" in the title. Munro is a writer who keeps getting better because she continues to challenge and to stretch herself. Some of Munro's hallmark themes are here: love, the past, memory. Reading this story is like walking through a house of fabulously intricate design. Around each corner is a surprise.
You reach the exit and discover that you are leaving by the way you came in. This is, in other words, insightful, polished, and, above all, well-crafted work. It demonstrates how much can be achieved within the apparently restrictive form of the short story. Perhaps it's because she is so very accomplished that I am always sorry to see new writers compared to Munro.
The publisher's staff writer who announces each new young writer as the next Alice Munro does both of them a disservice. Munro's voice is unique. But so are the new voices. There are some other wonderfully accomplished writers in this collection.
