From the jacket- "Today's river rats are linked to Powell by a colorful chain of individuals who braved then-unknown perils of water and rock. David Lavender has traced this history of adventure, beginning with legendary prospector James White who might even have preceded Powell through the Canyon when he was forced to flee Indians on a makeshift raft."
