GRAND CANYON AND OTHER SELECTED POEMS

by Amil Quayle


Amil Quayle was born near the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River in St. Anthony, Idaho, in 1938. In 1961 he ran his first river trip and has been hooked ever since. He was a full-time guide, mostly in the Grand Canyon, for many years and earned a B.S. degree in sociology from the University of Utah. Amil sold his river business and ranched in Nebraska for seven years. He then received a M.A. and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Nebraska and taught English for Utah State University and Idaho State University. But his heart is on the river, and he has been privileged to guide on many trips throughout his adventurous life. Soft cover, 112 pages.

UPSET IN UPSET

by Amil Quayle


Amil Quayle, author of Grand Canyon and Other SelectedPoems, is an old boatman who has been running the river since the 1960’s. This tale is from his early days as a guide in the Grand Canyon, a personal narrative of an adventure that seems implausible, which was made possible by the ever- changing Colorado River and the spirit of the people with whom he shared the journey.
