Improvement Era, Vol. 27 : September, 1924 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 27: September, 1924 All night Major Powell paced up and down the sandy bank of the river where camp had been established, and when morning came announced his determination to proceed. The Howland brothers and Dunn declined to go farther. Sup plies were very low, and the Howlands refused to accept any food. They took two rifles, and a shot gun, believing that with these they could kill game sufficient to provide food until they reached the settlements. As the boats pushed off and drifted slowly down toward the dangerous rapid, the Howland brothers and Dunn stood on a ledge of rock, far above the water, and waved adieu to their comrades. A few days later the Major reached the mouth of the Rio Virgin, his task finished. The Howland brothers and Dunn were never seen again by people of their own race. Their experiences can only be surmised from the following somewhat obscure facts. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
