Volume covering the life and times of John Wesley Powell, the last of America's great continental explorers and the first of a new breed of public servant: part scientist, part social reformer, part institution builder. Presents his thinking about land, water, and society, bringing together in a single volume writings ranging from his gripping account of exploring the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon to his views on the evolution of civilization, along with the seminal writings in which he sets forth his ideas on western settlement and the allocation and management of western resources.
