Summary
The Colorado, crucial to development in the American West, is at once wilderness, natural resource, recreation area, and wasteland. In seventy large-format color photographs, Karen Halverson captures the river's natural majesty as well as the strange and unexpected beauty of its altered state. The images take us on an intimate exploration of the Colorado's entire length--from its rugged upstream canyons, to its dams and reservoirs, to where it disappears into the desert, entirely consumed. In a personal introduction to the photographs, Halverson tells how she explored the Colorado--by car, on foot, and by raft--while learning about its transformation into a complex water delivery system. In a lyrical foreword, historian William Deverell sets the photographs in the illuminating context of Colorado River history and discovery--From publisher description
