P. T. Reilly--expert riverman, backcountry explorer, river chronicler--published articles on the history of the Colorado River, but he died in 1996 before his big work, a detailed and dramatic history of Lee's Ferry, was published. Robert H. Webb, author of Grand Canyon: A Century of Change, finished preparing this book for publication. One of the few places where wheeled vehicles could approach the Colorado River in its long miles through deep canyons and, thus, a critical transportation and communication link, north and south and up and down the river, Lee's Ferry became a historical funnel. A fascinating miscellany of western characters passed through or stayed. Reilly gives most of them a turn in the spotlight as part of his robust story of an out-of-the-way place that came to be on the way. Book jacket.
