Annotation First published in 1946, this classic account of the "Great Red River of the West" by Frank Waters tells the story of the vast Colorado River which collects water from the highest Rocky Mountain peaks and traverses the widest plateaus, the deepest canyons, and the lowest deserts before emptying into the delta of northern Mexico. This austere land and mighty river resist exploration, settlement, and description. In the hands of one of the West's great writers, the history and lore of the river's past make irresistible reading and a resounding case for mankind's respect for the environment.
