Contains the article, A Canyon Called Paria, by Charles Bowden. This is where Bowden spent 6 winter days tracing the steps of John D. Lee, when he was a fugitive from a federal murder warrant due to his participation in the Mountain Meadows Massacre. "I am very cold and have huddled in my sleeping bag since 6:00 p.m. yesterday. Now dawn bleeds over the red walls but brings no warmth, and I hide in my down shelter until 9:00 a.m. while the Paria River flows like liquid mud between banks of ice and the thermometer stalls at 24 degrees Fahrenheit." - Charles Bowden.
