Abstract:

"In this collection of essays, Page Stegner threads together natural history, conservation polemic, ecology, and wilderness adventures on a number of the West's major white-water rivers. With twenty-five years of rafting behind him, Stegner moves effortlessly from his own experiences on the Colorado, Yampa, Green, San Juan, Dolores, and Missouri rivers to first explorations by historical figures like Lewis and Clark and John Wesley Powell, to modern controversies that threaten the continued unspoiled isolation of these special places."

"From its opening essay, a hilarious, albeit hazardous, journey down the Owyhee River in southeastern Oregon, to its final impeachment of Lake Powell, Stegner's narrative is grounded in a passion for the West - both its past and the promise of its future."--Jacket.
