Description

There was a time when river runners built their own boats and rowed the Colorado River through Grand Canyon on free-flowing water; no permit problems, no high-tech gear and not much in the way of backup. What they did have were cameras, lots of film, cans of food, life jackets and journals to keep their notes in. Tom has chatted with a number of the guys and gals still standing, then scoured libraries, attics and garages to find the stories and pictures the others have left behind. He built a replica of Grand Canyon’s first decked McKenzie River dory from photographs, notes, and the original wreck the boat builder left behind, and has since rowed it through the Canyon three times. Here he tells the story of Moulty Fulmer, Brick Mortenson, P.T. Reilly, Dock Marston, and their friends on river trips on some of the highest water of the last century. He has included many stories of other trips during the same time period, the 1940s though the 1960s, including the development of recreational river running and boat design on the Colorado.
