Death on the North Rim

Dewey Moore

Outskirts Press, 2019 Moore’s historical fiction novel was inspired by his 1969 rafting trip through the Grand Canyon with Knox students. On the trip, he became aware of a mysterious disappearance of three of John Wesley Powell’s crew members. For the 150th anniversary of Powell’s expedition (2019), Moore used much historical research to come up with his version of what might have happened. This book follows one of the men who wanted to fill the blank spots on the map: George Bradley, a Civil War veteran who joins John Powell and the crew of men who made the first trip through the canyons of the Green and Colorado Rivers. Facing unknown dangers, these men attempt to navigate territory that no American settler has ever seen before.
