Description

Canyons of the Colorado by John Wesley Powell is a classic of American exploration literature. It is based on the Powell Geographic Expedition of 1869, which was the first trip down the Colorado River by boat, including the first trip through the Grand Canyon.

This vook brings Powell’s incredibly detailed descriptions of the landscape and people who inhabited the Canyons together with beautifully composed videos of the Grand Canyon and its surroundings.

Powell’s first written accounts of his exploration appeared in 1875 editions of Scribner’s Monthly. “The exploration was not made for adventure, but purely for scientific purposes, geographic and geologic, and I had no intention of writing an account of it, but only of recording the scientific results. Immediately on my return I was interviewed a number of times, and these interviews were published in the daily press; and here I supposed all interest in the exploration ended. But in 1874 the editors of Scribner's Monthly requested me to publish a popular account of the Colorado exploration in that journal.” Powell wrote.

Anyone interested in the Grand Canyon, the history of the Colorado River and the area’s indigenous culture will be awed by this detailed account of Powell’s maiden voyage into the canyons.

The book is great, pix and video mediocre

:
The Powell book (The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Canyon) is a must-read if you love the GC and the area. I was hoping to have a correlated set of pix/videos to go with Powell's extraordinary description of one of the great adventures of the 19th century. I was disappointed. The pix/videos were pretty but had no relation to the areas or features described in the text. I suppose if you don't know the area or haven't been there then the accompanying video is of interest. But if you are very familiar with the area or have rafted down the canyon as I have, it will be a disappointment. Check the book out from the library or download it for free if you can find it. The visuals in this app are standard - nothing special.
