Heather Hansman: Downriver

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Heather Hansman discusses her new book, Down River: Into the Future of Water in the West.

Praise for Down River

“Heather Hansman’s account of her 730-mile solo raft trip down the Green River is more than a terrific adventure story. She ably explains why water in the West doesn’t concern only the West and why simple answers to water questions are never as simple as they seem.” David Owen, author of Where the Water Goes


“History, politics, science, reportage, and adventure all whirl together in Downriver, a deeply researched and intimate exploration of water’s uncertain fate in the American West. In this narrative journey along the Green River, Heather Hansman navigates turbulent waters and diverse worldviews with compassion, grit, and an overriding respect for complexity. This book is graced with insights that can only be won with a paddle in hand and a sense of our collective future at stake.” Kate Harris, author of Lands of Lost Borders


“In her journey down the Green River, Heather Hansman brilliantly captures the complexity of the Colorado River through the lens of its largest tributary. Her balanced and thoughtful investigation into the river's many uses, the colorful characters that depend on it,and those who have dedicated careers to it will leave readers questioning their own biases and wanting to learn more about the landscape, its people, and its future. Downriver is a must read for those interested in the Colorado River and the future of the West.” Matt Rice, Director, Colorado River Basin Program
