Geologist William T. Parry describes the rivers, and includes shaded relief and geologic maps with each description. Transcending the notion of a traditional geology text, Parry provides detailed commentary on historical exploration, including the "discovery" of the mythical Buenaventura River by the Dominguez-Escalante expedition. He also discusses the development of spectacular local scenery as it was formed and altered by rivers. His ambitious scholarship offers a fresh look at Utah's changing landscape across geologic time.
