Publisher's Description

Revised Edition (originally published 1963)

An iconic book of great importance to the rise of contemporary environmental activism, Porter's photographs are a eulogy to the stunning texture, light, and rich history of Glen Canyon, which was subsequently flooded and sits beneath Lake Powell.

Mark Klett, Byron Wolfe, and Rebecca Solnit's 2018 image-text project, Drowned River: The Death and Rebirth of Glen Canyon on the Colorado, is an updated response to Porter and Brower's work in the context of climate change.
