In A River Running West, Donald Worster tells the story of Powell's great adventures and describes his historical significance. Worster paints a vivid portrait of how this man emerged from the early nineteenth-century world of immigrants, fervent religion, and rough-and-tumble rural culture, and barely survived the Civil War battle at Shiloh. The heart of Worster's biography is Powell's epic journey down the Colorado in 1869, a tale of harrowing experiences, lethal accidents, and breathtaking discoveries. After years in the region collecting rocks and fossils and learning to speak the local Native American languages, Powell returned to Washington as an eloquent advocate for the West, one of America's first and most influential conservationists. But in the end, he fell victim to a clique of Western politicians who pushed for unfettered economic development, relegating the aging explorer to a quiet life of anthropological contemplation+-+064445046514634ocn054416342file20030.39Van Noy, RickSurveying the interior literary cartographers and the sense of placeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"From the very beginning, American literature was closely intertwined with surveying. In Surveying the Interior, Rick Van Noy explores the ways that four American literary cartographers - Henry David Thoreau, Clarence King, John Wesley Powell, and Wallace Stegner - concerned themselves with what it means to map or survey a place and what it means to write about it. In the process, he helps to define the ways by which space enters the human psyche as definable place, as well as the ways by which physical landscape is transmuted - through the vagaries of human perception, representative processes, and emotion - into a sense of place as an intimate, personal manifestation of both physical and existential realities."--BOOK JACKET+-+092026923532412739ocn046951846book20010.21Dolnick, EdwardDown the great unknown : John Wesley Powell's 1869 journey of discovery and tragedy through the Grand CanyonBiographyDraws on the journals of the great explorer of the Grand Canyon to offer a detailed account of his meticulous, often perilous journey through the famous canyon+-+K46146515511925ocn000045175book19690.24Powell, John WesleyDown the Colorado; diary of the first trip through the Grand Canyon, 1869DiariesPictorial works+-+766513933532411744ocn670429499com20100.39Aton, James MJohn Wesley Powell his life and legacyCriticism, interpretation, etcBiographyBiography -- Interpreting Powell's writings on exploration, land planning, and anthropology -- Interpretations of Powell on irrigation -- Conclusion+-+974453923510573ocn065521603book20070.06Ray, Deborah KoganDown the Colorado : John Wesley Powell, the one-armed explorerJuvenile worksBiographyAlthough John Wesley Powell's minister father always wanted his son to follow in his footsteps, young Wes had different plans for his future. Enraptured by the wonders of the natural world, he was determined to take the path of science. Even after losing his right arm below the elbow in battle during the Civil War, Wes would not be deterred from his dream of leading the first scientific expedition down the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon.

Fraser traces Powell's three-month journey down the river in this informative text, which also quite clearly conveys the danger, excitement, and nonstop action of the adventure. She relied heavily on Powell's writings and the journals of other crew members and has included many passages in her work. Readers will enjoy her account of the trip, as well as her observations about Powell's farsighted views on water management and on the treatment of Native Americans.
