Media reviews
'This is a superb selection of the most important writings of the great American explorer, scientist, and conservationist. Powell's name has often been evoked over the past century, but few people have had access to the full range of his vigorous prose. Now deBuys has given us an exceptionally good introduction to the man, his ideas, and his America." -Donald Worster, Author Of A River Runningwest: The Life Of John Wesley Powell"
