Part of the American Experience series. Narration by Joe Morton plus voice by Peter Coyote equals documentary gold.

On post-Civil War maps, there was one place in the continental US that was unmapped, and that was that section of the Colorado River that goes through the Grand Canyon. A one-armed war hero and a band of volunteers set out to sail down it without knowing how they’d get out. Fascinating.
