Transcript for How Water Won the West, segment 08 of 8


The cycle is complete. Soon it will start over again. There is so much beauty, so much life in the arid West. Man and nature have joined together. They have achieved a delicate union that has made them one. It's nothing short of a miracle.


Today it's the story of man's triumphant quest. He used the mighty rivers to quench the arid West. He saw the snow-capped mountains and the waters they would bring like a fountain nature turns on every spring.

Now the barren wasteland has turned to fertile green, a sign that man is equal to the test. We are one with nature, and together we have seen that this is how water won the West, that this is how water won the West.
