The Emerald Mile: Grand Canyon, Adventure, and Threats to Our National Parks
A Presentation by Author Kevin Fedarko
Kevin Fedarko is author of New York Times bestseller, The Emerald Mile, which recounts the story of the record-setting speed run through Grand Canyon in a small wooden dory during the largest flood to sweep the Colorado River in generations. Fedarko’s presentation will cover geology, hydrology, the history of American exploration, and the art of rowing extreme whitewater deep inside the Grand Canyon. With a nod to the centennial of the National Park Service, Fedarko will also talk about threats to our National Parks, and what we can do to renew our commitment to the crown jewels of the American landscape. Fedarko’s writing has appeared in Outside, Esquire, the New York Times, and other publications. The Emerald Mile, won a National Outdoor Book Award and the Reading the West Award.
