Woman of the River

by Richard E. Westwood

Georgie White Clark-adventurer, raconteur, eccentric--first came toknow the canyons of the Colorado River by swimming portions of them witha single companion. She subsequently hiked and rafted portions of thecanyons, increasingly sharing her love of the Colorado River withfriends and acquaintances. At first establishing a part-time guideservice as a way to support her own river trips, she went on to becomeperhaps the canyons' best-known river guide, introducing their rapids tomany others-on the river, via her large-capacity rubber rafts, andacross the nation, via magazine articles and movies. Georgie Clark sawthe river and her sport change with the building of Glen Canyon Dam,enormous increases in the popularity of river running, and increasedNational Park Service regulation of rafting and river guides. Adjusting,though not always easily, to the changes, she helped transform an eliteadventure sport into a major tourist activity.
