Eric Theissen is a former geologist and software developer.
A convergence of mind, a lake, and a kayak. Author Eric Theissen fulfills a longtime ambition of paddling Lake Powell in a kayak. In this book, he relates many aspects of the paddle - the fullfillment, musings on topics far and wide, and a tongue-in-cheek look at the many "creatures" (boats and boaters) he encounters on the way.
The second part of the book is devoted to an examination of the lake itself, and the forces - geological, political, and ecological - that have been instrumental in the formation of the lake and its effect on the environment.
For anyone wanting to explore Lake Powell by kayak, and who want to know more about this fascinating and controversial lake, this book is a must read.
