 Notes & Reviews
 
GRAND CANYON STORY, written and narrated by Mark Sickman, traces the exploration of the Grand Canyon by John Wesley Powell's ten-man expedition. Powell embarked at Green River Station, Wyoming in April of 1869. Ninety-nine days later, after a harrowing adventure of 1000 miles, the six surviving members of the group emerged ragged and starving at the mouth of the Virgin River in southern Nevada--now Lake Mead. Powell's exploits--and the journey of Lewis and Clark--are regarded as the greatest feats of exploration ever achieved in the continental United States. Rich in detail and lyrically presented, this 2-CD set captures the true spirit of Powell's adventure--his tenacious leadership, the incredible physical hardship, the audacious courage, the intense psychological interplay among the members of the expedition. Brilliant renditions of traditional music by Mary Z. Cox help bring the story to life. GRAND CANYON STORY is perfect for anyone who loves a great yarn beautifully told. It's the ideal audio companion for tourists exploring the Canyon, or driving the lonesome highways of Utah and Arizona.
