Description
In the 1950s when the Bureau of Reclamation proposed two dams in the Grand Canyon, Martin Litton believed the best way for people to understand how important it was to preserve this secret world was to have them experience it from the river—but not in just any boat.
Additional Information


Native Coloradan Pete McBride has spent two decades studying the world with a camera. A self-taught photographer, filmmaker, writer and public speaker, he has traveled on assignment to over 75 countries for the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, Outside, Esquire, Microsoft, The Nature Conservancy and many more. After a decade documenting remote expeditions from Everest to Antarctica, McBride decided to focus his cameras closer to home on a subject closer to his heart—his backyard river, the Colorado. Four years and 1500-river miles later, McBride produced a book and three award-winning short documentaries and hosted a PBS TV program. For his latest project, McBride hiked the entire length of Grand Canyon National Park to highlight the challenges our national parks face as increased development pressures are poised to change the canyon’s iconic landscape. That story comes out on National Geographic and PBS channels in 2016/17.
