Men on Boats

Men on Boats

This dynamic and very funny piece of writing is a provocative lens for re-examining an extraordinary American moment.

Men on Boats recounts the exhilarating story of John Wesley Powell’s expedition down the Green and Colorado rivers. The history of this 19th-century journey may have been the exclusive domain of men, but Jaclyn Backhaus calls for casting “…radically diverse actors who are female identifying, trans-identifying, gender fluid, and/or non-gender conforming.” This dynamic and very funny piece of writing is a provocative lens for re-examining an extraordinary American moment.
