Glen Canyon Betrayed: A Sensuous Elegy (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Katie Lee's book, Glen Canyon Betrayed, should be read by all wilderness lovers. It beautifully invokes what it is like to have the freedom to explore one's deepest values within the intimacy of nature's rapture. Sadly, this freedom is increasingly diminished by the commercial clutter of a river that is increasingly being managed as a theme park for the wealthy. Katie's works are paeans to the "wild, sacred heart" of a paradise lost. For more than a decade, she regularly ran Glen Canyon before it was buried under trillions of tons of water in 1962. Her book recreates the beauty of the Glen, describes the characters that lived there, and tells how it changed her life.
