Download and read online The Emerald Mile in PDF and EPUB From one of Outside magazine’s “Literary All-Stars” comes the thrilling true tale of the fastest boat ride ever, down the entire length of the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon, during the legendary flood of 1983. In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the length of the Colorado River confronted a team of engineers at the Glen Canyon Dam with an unprecedented emergency that may have resulted in the most catastrophic dam failure in history. In the midst of this crisis, the decision to launch a small wooden dory named “The Emerald Mile” at the head of the Grand Canyon, just fifteen miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam, seemed not just odd, but downright suicidal. The Emerald Mile, at one time slated to be destroyed, was rescued and brought back to life by Kenton Grua, the man at the oars, who intended to use this flood as a kind of hydraulic sling-shot. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled—by oar, by motor, or by the grace of God himself—down the entire length of the Colorado River from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead. Did he survive? Just barely. Now, this remarkable, epic feat unfolds here, in The Emerald Mile.

Introductory chapters include clear and concise information on plate tectonics, different types of volcanoes, different eruption styles and volcanic hazards. The main chapters of the book take the reader on a journey around the world, with the key objectives being to illustrate some of the 'typical' volcanic features and also show that each and every volcano is unique with regards to the combination of location, age, tectonic setting, historic eruptions, eruption style, nature and culture around it. The 'narrative' describes a journey beginning in Iceland and taking in Italy, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Ethiopia, Congo, Tanzania and the Canary Islands. We cross the Atlantic to look at the Guatemalan volcanoes and then travel north to the USA, ending up in the Aleutian Islands and Hawaii. In the south Pacific we examine the famous volcanoes of Vanuatu and New Zealand, before taking in Japan and Indonesia, ending at Krakatau. An ideal book for volcano enthusiasts of all levels, from experts to those with an amateur interest. It is also a good educational tool for children studying the subject at school, whilst the remarkable imagery of active volcanoes makes it an excellent gift book. -- Tom Pfeiffer + Ingrid Smet
