QuoteOne hundred and fifty years ago, a Civil War veteran and naturalist named John Wesley Powell led a famed expedition of the Colorado River, a journey that led to one of the most famous writings about the southwestern U.S. and launching still-going debates about the arid West, its natural landscapes and its relationship with people.

To mark the occasion, author Christa Sadler is set to give a free lecture on Powell and his impacts, informed by the recent publication of her book "Seeing Things Whole: John Wesley Powell and an Understanding of the American West"

John Wesley Powell was a badass. Read his account of the descent of the Colorado River.



He lost most of his right arm at the battle of Shiloh.

Read his book

It is incredible what he achieved. Today people are falling into the Grand Canyon in their attempt to take selfies...
