Walking the Unknown River
and Other Travels in Escalante Country
by Ann Weiler Walka in cooperation with the Museum of Northern Arizona


John Wesley Powell's men called the Escalante River the "Unknown River." It was the last river to be charted on the maps of the U.S. lower 48 states and it still remains quite remote today. The author recalls a wild and lovely place partially drowned by Lake Powell. Ann's essays and poems evoke the solitude, beauty and harshness of the remote country along the Escalante River in southern Utah. Her many travels through the country allow her to relax into it and let is speak through her. Ann Walka is a naturalist, museum trip-guide and poet.
Soft cover 103 pages.
