Summary: "Accurate transcription, long overdue, of the letters and diaries written during the [1869] expedition form the core of this book, but it goes well beyond a mere compilation of documents. The crew members emerge from the shadows to tell their stories, often differing from the account written by expedition leader John Wesley Powell"--Scott Thybony, Cover, p. 4.
