Welcome to Zion Canyon between the 1910s and the 1930s. Children help haul drinking water from the Virgin River. Men watch helplessly as the river washes away the crops of an entire growing season. A young boy who will grow up to be a ranger hears the last howls of wolves in Zion canyon. A little girl watches the full moon rise over the canyon in the safety of her father's arms. A new national park is born. The outside world encroaches. Adventure, change hope and heartache are in the air. A young girl, now 87 years old, savors the intense and intriguing smells of a flash flood.
