Controversial and environmentally reprehensible, the damming of the Colorado River at Glen Canyon in 1965 proved by the late 1990s to be a failure. Lake Powell silted up and then went dry in years of drought. There is now real hope the dam will be removed and the astonishingly beautiful canyon will return to something like its original state. James Kay provides stunning photos of the Canyon to illustrate McGivney's account of this story, which she witnessed at close range over the years that she visited and studied the area. She describes how the dam was originally marketed, the political arena that condemned calls for its removal, and includes interviews with those who loved Lake Powell as well as those that rejoice in the Canyon's return. The volume is printed in an oversized, horizontal format: 11x10". Braided River is an imprint of Mountaineers Books. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
