"This is more than a book of stunning photographs and gripping words. This is scripture from the depths of our remaining wilderness. Writing Down the River may be the most unique adventure book of the year."Hugh Sidey, Time Magazine
The Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport featured a six-month exhibit of the book from May to October, 2004, and the Grand Canyon Association exhibited the display at the historic Kolb Studio on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon during the winter of 2005. The exhibit continues to travel the country. Contact Kathleen Jo Ryan for an update on the DVD production of Writing Down the River.
