Josh Spiro October 15, 2007 EXP 101 Powell Essay John Wesley Powell made the American West what it is today. He was the primary founder of the Bureau of Reclamation and of the United States Geological Service. He also completed the last great feat of exploration on American soil when he and his crew undertook the dangerous voyage down the Colorado. Major Powell was accompanied in the Emma Dean by J.C Sumner and William H. Dunn, W. H. Powell (Powell’s brother) and George Bradley in the Kitty Clyde's Sister , Oramel Howland, Seneca Howland and Frank Goodman in the No Name , and Billy Hawkins and Andrew Hall in the Maid of the Canyon . Major Powell's expedition had already suffered numerous disasters and losses of food, supplies, and equipment by the time they began their descent into Marble Canyon. By the time they reached the head of Grand Canyon, the expedition members were living on rations of spoiled bacon, musty flour, dried apples and coffee. Yet they pressed on with their quest into the great unknown, due to the sheer determination and the autocratic viewpoint of the one armed civil war veteran, John Powell.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
