First Through Grand Canyon

Regular price $19.95
The Secret Journals and Letters of the 1869 Crew Who Explored the Green and Colorado Rivers.

In May of 1869, eleven men stood beside four moored boats at Green River, Wyoming. These men's mission, their goal, and their fates hung on the intent to navigate those boats one thousands miles down the Green and Colorado rivers through the unexplored canyons to and beyond Grand Canyon. Here for the first time this gripping saga of extreme adventure, optimism, courage, fear, heroism, humor, triumph, and tragedy is told by the men themselves via their newly transcribed, unabridged journals and letters written during the expedition.
