In 1927 Clyde Eddy recruited a handful of college students to serve as crewmen and loaded them, a hobo, a mongrel dog, and a bear cub into three boats and set out to travel the length of the Colorado River. This book is the original narrative of that foolhardy and thrilling adventure.
This biography re-creates Jack Crawford's experience as a scout, rancher, miner, reformer, husband and father, and poet and entertainer to reinterpret the American Dream and the lure of getting rich pursued by many during the Gilded Age.
"Based on the American folk ballad 'Tennessee Stud,' this novel by the author of Secrets of the Tsil Café is an artistic masterpiece galloping with classic all-American appeal."-- Library Journal, starred review
