WINNER of the 2017 IPPY Award Bronze Medal for Best Regional Nonfiction, Mountain-West, at the Independent Book Publisher Awards! Here is your chance to take a trip down one of the world's great rivers from its first trickle to its broad delta. Remarkable photographs show the West's natural wonders, tracing the Colorado River and its major tributary, the Green River, from beginning to end. The rivers flow through many habitats from treeless tundra to coastal desert, encompassing millions of years of geological history. On their way to the sea, the Colorado and the Green bend through more than a dozen national parks, monuments, wildlife refuges, and recreation areas, and nourish wildlife from majestic moose to fifty-pound trout to tiny lizards. Enjoy descriptions of river communities and some of the best fishing holes and recreation areas along the way, as well as facts about glaciers, dinosaurs, miners, and mountain men. Ride along (staying dry all the way) through the vast Colorado River Basin, which covers more land area than Spain and Portugal combined, and of course through the unforgettable colors and vistas of the grandest canyon on earth.
