Heather Hansman - Downriver


Into the Future of Water in the West, a Nature Book Talk & Signing

The Green River, the most significant tributary of the Colorado River, runs 730 miles from the glaciers of Wyoming to the desert canyons of Utah. Stopped up by dams, slaked off by irrigation, and dried up by cities, the Green is at risk now more than ever. Heather Hansman, award-winning environmental journalist, will discuss and sign Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West ($25.00 University of Chicago Press).

Hansman set out on a journey, in a one-person inflatable pack raft, to paddle the river from source to confluence and see what the experience might teach her. Mixing lyrical accounts of quiet paddling, nights spent camping solo, and lively discussions with farmers, city officials, and other people met along the way, Downriver is the story of that journey, a foray into the present--and future--of water in the West.
