Release date: Thursday, February 20th, 1992
On May 24, 1869, Civil War veteran Major John Wesley Powell launched an expedition of ten men to explore the last remaining tract of unknown wilderness in the continental United States. This last unknown was the thousand miles of canyons of the Green and Colorado rivers, rivers which seemed to vanish into the Earth itself. The expedition was launched at Green River, Wyoming, and 99 days and 1,000 miles later, Powell and his companions had earned a place in history, and one of North America's most important river systems was charted. River of Stone recreates Powell's journey through the heart of Colorado Plateau using archival photographs and new footage from a recent re-enactment, following the wake of Powell's wooden dories through landscapes and waterways changed greatly through human intervention.
