Webb (Riverman, Labyrinth, 1989) has put together an enthralling history of the men and women who have explored the Green and Colorado rivers. He profiles surveyors, scientists, prospectors, photographers, adventurers, and outfitters who devoted time and energy to exploring and running these major rivers between 1867 and the early 1960s. The profiles are interesting and entertaining-for example, Georgie White was famous for powering right down the center of the biggest rapids. When some of her paying customers were washed overboard, she reportedly commented, "They sure don't make passengers like they used to." River runners will definitely want to purchase this work to fill out their collections. Academic libraries in the Southwest will also want to add.
