The Ca˝ons of the
Colorado--the 1869 discovery voyage down the Colorado
by Major John Wesley Powell.
Note the word ca˝ons in the title would today be spelled canyons. From Wyoming, into
Colorado, through Utah, to Arizona and the Grand Canyon, and to Nevada--this was the
journey of the "Colorado River Exploring Expedition", what Powell called his
group of 9 men and 4 boats as they began charting what was the last major unexplored part
of the then United States. The trip was not only scientific in its goals, but it naturally
became a grand adventure, with two of their party opting to leave the expedition before
attempting a furious cascade, only to be killed by Indians. Much of the land and scenery
which they drifted or dashed past is today included in national park areas.
Illustrations are by Thomas Moran and others. 64 pages.
ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-059-1. Order #:
