[About the Great Lives biography series.]

John Wesley Powell spent two summers in Colorado preparing to lead the first exploration of the Grand Canyon by a non-Native American. While in Colorado, he climbed Longs Peak, Mount Lincoln, and Pikes Peak. His bravery was underscored by the fact he had only one arm. He lost his right arm at the Battle of Shiloh in the Civil War. Powell became a champion of Native American culture and headed the U.S. Bureau of Ethnology as its first director.
