All About Nature

"Water's primacy as both commodity and signifier in the Southwest arose through a combination of it scarcity and utility." (Cassuto 2)

Overall I did not like this article very much. I found it hard to follow, and I found myself getting lost constantly as I was trying to reading it. Also, it seemed like there was more of a focus on nature than the Grapes of Wrath. When the Grapes of Wrath was mentioned, it seemed like the book was being used to validate how things happened in history, as if the book were non-fiction. Instead it seemed like the events in the novel should have been discussed using history rather than being used to back up history.
