Major John Wesley Powell was the first to run the treacherous canyon-locked course of the Green and Colorado rivers, boldly leading his 1869 expedition into waters marked 'unexplored' on all maps, a torturous thousand-mile excursion from Wyoming to Nevada. in 1969, Gaylord Staveley, a professional river runner, returned to the sheer cliffs, the sleek-tongued rapids, the roar and restless pace of those same waters to chart the changes, to recapture as nearly as possible the century-old challenge, running the river with no power and no more boats than a wooden boat, a pair of oars, skill, technique and the sharpness of the senses.
