Glen Canyon by T. Nichols
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a powerful testament to the beauty and history that gave way to progress. Beginning at Hite, Utah, the site of an old pioneer camp, and following the course of the river through the canyon to Lees Ferry, this book leisurely takes in the sweeping views and labyrinthine side canyons that make the wondrous place that was Glen Canyon. The long 162-mile long stretch of river through the canyon chronicles the natural history of south-eastern Utah and the human history as well. Anasazi ruins and mining camps, heron colonies and hanging gardens, reflecting pools and tapestry walls are here magnificently recalled. With his photographs, writings from diaries kept during his years on the river and recollections, Tad Nichols takes us on a journey -- no longer possible today -- through the heart of canyon country. This book is what remains of one of the last great wilderness experiences.
