Media Adaptations

In 1997, PBS, in association with KCET/Los Angeles, aired a four-part documentary called Cadillac Desert. The first three episodes of the series, "Mulholland's Dream," "An American Nile," and "The Mercy of Nature," were based on Reisner's book, while the fourth episode ("Last Oasis") was based on the book of the same name by Sandra Postel. The series, a production of Trans Pacific Television and KTEH/ San Jose Public Television, won a Silver Baton for the filmmakers (Reisner, Jon Else, and Sandra Itkoff) at the 1998 Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards ceremony.
