An award-winning Outside magazine writer documents the 1983 Colorado River flood that threatened the region with a catastrophic dam failure and prompted oarsman Kenton Grua's near-suicidal effort to navigate the turbulent waters of the Emerald Mile on a small wooden dory to achieve a world speed record.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 In 1540, Francisco Vásquez de Coronado was given supreme command of the largest expedition of conquest in the brief but magnificently profitable history of the New World. His company was made up of 230 horsemen recruited from the nobility of New Spain, 62 heavily armed foot soldiers, and five friars. #2 The expedition began to realize that Cibola might not be as rich as they had hoped. The first major encounter between Europeans and natives in the territory of the United States took place when the Spanish commander, Coronado, attacked the pueblo of Háwikuh. The Zuñi storehouses held mostly dried corn and pinto beans. #3 When Cárdenas arrived at the entrance to the abyss, the continent from which he and his men came was still in the Middle Ages, while the first tremors of the seismic shifts that would rock the face of the world were already being felt. #4 The first encounter between Cárdenas and the canyon took place at the edge of the abyss, where the South Rim bends from the east to the north. Today, this promontory is known as Desert View.

Written by Stephen Grace, the companion book to The Great Divide, a film by Havey Productions, is a sweeping, magnificently illustrated story of Colorado water from the region’s first inhabitants to the incoming settlers and developers to modern environmentalists. Times and places are covered from the archaeological remains of ancient Native American reservoirs, the first and longest operating water right in Colorado, important innovations in irrigated agriculture, the stunning dams that create reservoirs for storage and recreation, and the natural beauty of Colorado’s wild places. The book, based on the film, will be a natural source for viewers who seek additional knowledge beyond the film, but it will also stand alone for readers who desire a basic but engaging entrance into the world of Colorado water. A vast array of breathtaking photographs, both archival and contemporary serve as attractive illustrations and a supplemental way to tell the story, along with descriptive captions.

"This is not a simple or ordinary history of a conservation crusade. Schrepfer very ably traces the changes in scientific wisdom from nineteenth-century romanticism and teleological evolutionism to more current ecological dynamism—and the influence of those intellectual developments on political history. . . . The subject is important—much broader than the title suggests—and so is the book."—American Historical Review
