NHTP's 30th Season continues with the exciting adventure story Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus.  History, legend, magic realism, and hilarious comedy illuminate the tale of John Wesley Powell’s famous 1869 expedition down the Colorado River into the Grand Canyon.

John Wesley Powell was an extraordinary man,” says director Genevieve Aichele, “a passionate self-taught geologist, teacher, military leader and explorer.  After conducting numerous scientific expeditions in the west, he went on to form the Bureau of Ethnology at the Smithsonian.  In an age of rapid western expansion, Powell presented a radical new vision of the American West centered on watersheds instead of political boundaries, and predicted future water shortages if development continued at an uncontrolled pace.  Sadly, his cautions were ignored, and the Colorado River of 1869 no longer even reaches the sea.  Audiences will find the story of Powell’s adventure resonates with many contemporary environmental issues.”
