it was amazing
Read from March 03 to 07, 2011

A wilderness adventure wrapped in a mystery with a thriller on the side. Dimock interviewed everyone alive who had even marginally entered the Hydes' orbit, which makes for some confusion, but so does a wave train on a wild river. The many photographs offer a breath-catching eddy to slow the charging pace. Descending the Colorado in a sweep scow unsupported was a crazy idea, but it was a decade of crazy ideas that worked out better than this trip. A father's search for his missing child is the heart of the story, and Bessie Hyde's poetry is a mournful reminder that the couple were young, smart with a bright future ahead, but for this crazy idea.
