The Rapids And The Roar: A Boating History Of The Colorado River And Grand Canyon

But Gaylord Stavely was not only one of the first people to raft the river; he was there when the entire river-running industry was born, knows all of the history behind the places, and the eccentric people who yearned for the freedom of the river.
