Gene Field Foster, photographer and artist, was committed to preserving Glen Canyon's memory through scenic and scientific images. Her passion manifested itself in over 500 exquisite, irreplaceable, little-known photographs now in the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) archives. Her friendship with MNA Curator of History and Librarian Katherine Bartlett led to them leading survey trips to explore, map, and photograph archaeological sites in Glen Canyon up to the projected level of Lake Powell.
This book tells of the lives of Gene and Katherine and how their Glen Canyon research impacted them. There are extracts from their journals and many photographs of places and artifacts now under Lake Powell

This is a slim book with many remarkable photographs. We've chosen to distribute it because Glen Canyon is the place we can almost visit but not quite. It disappeared beneath Lake Powell when Glen Canyon Dam was built. We can hike around the edges, and it has a lot of edges to it. We can float over it and see its contours and potential as a river, but the only way to know it now is through the several stunning collections of old photographs and journals scattered around the archives of the Southwest. This is a sample from one of those and we thank Susan Deaver Olberding for making it available to us all.

978-0-9720048-3-1, 52 pages, color photographs throughout, 2011, 9" wide by 8" high, $19.95.
