ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Native Coloradan Peter McBride has always been passionate about flying, particularly low & slow. That aerial bug helped lure him into a self-taught photography career that has taken him on assignment to over 60 countries for National Geographic, Smithsonian, & Outside magazines. His photography, writing, & video work have earned him accolades internationally, & in 2007 he was awarded a Knight Fellowship for professional journalists at Stanford University. When not on assignment, Peter can be found on his family?s ranch cutting hay or ?chasing water? (irrigating), or around his home in nearby Basalt, Colorado, where he serves as a town councilman.

Jonathan Waterman has worked as a wilderness guide, magazine editor, park ranger, director of a small press, guard dog agitator, & freelance writer. He has authored ten books, including Running Dry: A Journey From Source to Sea Down the Colorado River (National Geographic Books, 2010) & five television documentaries. The recognition for his work includes magazine & book awards, a literary fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, & an Emmy. He has created a wall map of the Colorado River Basin, & with coauthor Peter McBride, ?The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict? photography exhibit, touring the West.
