From School Library Journal Grade 5-9-A fascinating account of Major John Wesley Powell's 16-month journey down the Colorado River, as seen through the eyes of a teenaged crew member. The author traces Dellenbaugh's trip from his hometown of Buffalo, NY, when he first read about Powell in 1869, until 1873, when he created the first map of the Grand Canyon and the territory around it. The young man joined the team as a crewman, but he was asked by Powell to document the voyage with pictures and maps. This artwork is used to illustrate the book, along with remarkable black-and-white photographs taken on the expedition. The trip is truly an exciting one, full of mishaps and near disasters. Dellenbaugh continued traveling and writing throughout his lifetime, even producing a book about his time on the Colorado. As he did in Rocket! How a Toy Launched the Space Age (Crown, 1995), Maurer offers a well-crafted, exciting book about exploration and adventure.
