Description


"Podmore's essays resemble Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau with an extra dose of social, racial and political analysis."
--ARIZONA DAILY SUN

In the wake of his river-running mother's death, Zak Podmore explores the healing power of wild places through a lens of grief and regeneration. Visceral, first-person narratives include a canoe crossing of the Colorado River delta during a rare release of water, a kayak sprint down a flash-flooding Little Colorado River, and a packraft trip on the Elwha River in Washington through the largest dam removal project in history.

Award-winning journalist and film producer ZAK PODMORE covers conservation issues, outdoor sports, and Utah politics. He is a Report for America fellow at the Salt Lake Tribune and editor-at-large for Canoe & Kayak magazine. His work appears in Outside, High Country News, Four Corners Free Press, and the Huffington Post. He lives in Bluff, Utah.
