"Cataract Canyon is a book of scientific and emotional integrity. Consider it a passport for anyone entering this particular stretch of the Colorado River with their eyes wide open for a joyous pilgrimage."—Terry Tempest Williams, author of Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert
"Cataract Canyon is a labor of experts who love not only the river and everything about it, but who are able to faithfully record the facts without diminishing the mystery of how it all folds together and thereby unfolds in the human mind and eye. A more comprehensive collection of natural, environmental, and human history is hard to imagine.... The knowledge imparted in this book is endless and endlessly fascinating."—The Times-Independent, Moab
