The Emerald Mile by Kevin Fedarko

I read The Emerald Mile because it’s my best friend’s favorite book. I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon and I’ve never seen the Colorado River. This book, in telling the story of The Emerald Mile’s incredible speed run of 1983, is a love story about the river. I was quite pleasantly surprised at how interesting the story was to me and how beautiful and descriptive the writing. I recommend The Emerald Mile to anyone who loves our earth and, especially, the Colorado River.
