The Grand Adventure

On May 24, 1869, John Wesley Powell, a one-armed Civil War veteran, and a ragtag group of nine other men set out on a river journey into the then uncharted territory of the Grand Canyon and other canyons of the West.

It took John Wesley Powell and his companions nearly 100 days and 1000 miles of surviving hot days and cold nights, boat wrecks, flash floods, sandstorms, and near starvation to complete their journey.

By Mark A. Hicks, Donna E. Hicks  
Illustrated by Mark A. Hicks, award-winning illustrator
