Synopsis: In May of 1869, eleven men embarked on a journey of exploration and discovery. 98 days later six of them arrived 1000 miles away after navigating the Green and Colorado Rivers to the end of Grand Canyon. The journals and writings of the expedition leader, John Wesley Powell have been extensively published but here, for the first time, are the newly transcribed, unabridged journals and letters of some of the other members of the group. Author Ghiglieri has used his extensive river running experience to introduce the whole group and their exploits of courage and endurance.
About the Author: Michael P. Ghiglieri earned a PhD in Ecology from U.C. Davis for his research on wild chimps. He has worked as an international wilderness river guide since 1974 and has rowed Grand Canyon over 100 times. His previous books Canyon and Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon (co-authored with Tom Myers) have earned him a deserved reputation as an interpreter of wilderness adventure, exploration and values.
