Downriver, Heather Hansman chronicles the history and contemporary problem of water usage along the Green River, the major tributary of the Colorado River. Hansman tells this story from the river itself as she paddles the Green from source to confluence interviewing farmers, government officials, and activists along the way. Through these encounters, Hansman tells a complex story of the history, beauty, and significance of the Green.

Heather Hansman is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in Outside, California Sunday, Smithsonian, and many other outlets. After a decade of raft guiding across the United States, she lives in Seattle.
