Alone on the Colorado

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2019 – ROY WEBB

Renowned river historian, Roy Webb, will discuss his newest publication, Alone on the Colorado, the journals of Harold Leich.  His 1933 travel narrative details his river trip down the Yellowstone River and the first descent by boat of the upper Colorado River from Grand Lake, Colorado, through Cataract Canyon, Utah. He was the first to push through this entire upper section, running rapids that had never known a paddle, rebuild­ing his kayak along the riverbanks, camping rough, and meeting ranchers and railroad workers in these remote regions.
