NG Live!: John Wesley Powell: From the Depths of the Grand Canyon
A true hero of the American West, John Wesley Powell made the first descent of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. A National Geographic founding member who gave the Society's first lecture on February 13, 1888, this larger-than-life explorer is brought to the stage by Clay Jenkinson.
