Join us October 23 for an evening with Kevin Fedarko, author of the The Emerald Mile, as he talks about the Colorado River and signs books. Check out this recent interview with Kevin.
About the Book:
In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the Colorado River almost resulted in a catastrophic dam failure. In the midst of this crisis, a decision was made to launch a small wooden dory called ‘The Emerald Mile’ at the head of the Grand Canyon, which was not just odd, but suicidal. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled down the entire length of the Colorado River. Now, this remarkable epic feat unfolds in The Emerald Mile, a thrilling and true tale of the fastest boat ride ever.
