One of the few places where wheeled vehicles could approach the Colorado River in its long miles through deep canyons and, thus, a critical transportation and communication link, north and south and up and down the river, Lee's Ferry became a historical funnel. A fascinating miscellany of western characters passed through or stayed. Reilly gives most of them a turn in the spotlight as part of his robust story of an out-of-the-way place that came to be on the way.
