In July 1776 a pair of Franciscan friars, Francisco Atanasio Domínguez and Silvestre Vélez de Escalante, were charged by the governor of New Mexico with discovering a route across the unknown Southwest to the new Spanish colony in California. UK editor and Banff Mountain and Wilderness Writing Program faculty member Tony Whittome sits down with famed adventure writer David Roberts to chat about his new book Escalante’s Dream, which retraces the route of the legendary Domínguez-Escalante expedition.
