MEDIA REVIEWS
"A must-stow companion for beginning paddlers, seasoned river runners, and even armchair adventurers with dreams of exploring these storied rivers, Bezemek successfully weaves essential planning information with a vivid narration of the 1869 expedition and episodes from his own worthy pilgrimage down the Green and Colorado. The result is informative and inspirational, awakening paddlers of all levels to a deeper history and wider scope of opportunities along the JWP route." -Dave Shively, Editor of Canoe & Kayak Magazine
"150 years after Major Powell's Green and Colorado River expedition, Mike Bezemek does an outstanding job retracing the journey in a clear and comprehensive river guide. The Major would have given his left boot for a copy of this book." -Tom Martin, guidebook author and co-winner of a 2007 National Outdoor Book Award
"An exciting new format for river information, one that is not sectioned off by state boundaries but rather by a connecting story. Progress downstream right along with Powell and his men." -Susan Hollingsworth Elliot, author of Paddling America.
