The Colorado River Through Glen Canyon: Before Lake Powell

The Colorado River Through Glen Canyon: Before Lake Powell by Eleanor Inskip

Reviewed by L. Bennett

You've probably heard about the "hidden national park" revealed as the waters of Lake Powell recede and expose things some of us have never seen. It made me think of a book I read in 1995, and I decided to take another look at it. It was compiled by Eleanor Inskip and features photos of several places that were covered when Lake Powell filled. Each picture is accompanied by extracts from journals, books, correspondence, and other works to give a perspective on the place and its meaning. People who explore the lake today might want to take this book along and enjoy the photos, compare with what you see, and feel the emotions expressed by people whose lives were shaped by their Glen Canyon experiences.
