"This book has given me more pleasure than anything I've read in ages. It's the opposite of a eulogy; it's a birth notice, or a rebirth notice, for one of the central landscapes in the American imagination. Annette McGivney's sage, balanced, and beautiful prose and James Kay's informative and inspiring photographs provide a strong hit of that caffeine we most need right now: hope, real honest-to-God hope that someplace in the world is getting greener, not browner--better, not worse."

-- Bill McKibben, educator and environmentalist, and author of The End of Nature and The Bill McKibben Reader

"In Resurrection, journalist Annette McGivney celebrates the reservoir's [Lake Powell] decline as an opportunity to reclaim and restore Glen Canyon...James Kay's photographs show glowing sculpted sandstone corridors emerging from the silt, waterfalls beginning to run again, and cottonwoods reclaiming their native soil. With a foreword by Bill McKibben, guides to newly restored hikes and suggestions to further action, the book is part history and part manifesto for a new era of Western water management. --High Country News, May25, 2009

"There have been literally hundreds of books written about Glen Canyon, the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell near Page, AZ. Unfortunately, given the critical importance and controversial nature of the subject, most are not really worth the reader's time. This book is an exception." --The Oklahoma Observer, May 25, 2009

"No matter your view on Glen Canyon and whether it should be preserved or not, this is a book that will capture your attention. It is thoughtfully written and the images of Glen Canyon and Lake Powell are spectacularly interesting." --Deseret News, March 28, 2009
