About this title:

Synopsis: The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Canyons By John Wesley Powell

About the Author: John Wesley Powell (1834 1902) was a US soldier, geologist, explorer of the American West, and director of major scientific and cultural institutions. He is famous for the 1869 Powell Geographic Expedition, a three-month river trip down the Green and Colorado rivers that included the first known passage through the Grand Canyon.

One of the first American writers to gain acclaim in Europe, Washington Irving was also an essayist, a biographer, an historian, and a diplomat. He is best known for having written the short stories The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle, both of which appeared in the collection The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. Though he is best known for his short stories, Irving s written works include social and political commentary for the literary magazine Salmagundi, which he helped found, as well as biographies of a number of historical figures including George Washington and the prophet Muhammad. Irving died in 1859 at the age of 76.

Anthony Brandt is an expert in the history of travel and adventure and is the book review editor for "Adventure" magazine. He has edited more than 20 books for National Geographic and is a contributor to "GQ, Esquire," the "New York Times Sunday Magazine," and other publications. His edited "Journals of Lewis and Clark" has sold nearly 100,000 copies in special markets and the trade.
