Field Guide to Green River History & Culture

With support from the National Endowment for the Arts and Green River Archives, we recently compiled a Field Guide to Green River History & Culture. While no means exhaustive, this document looks to provide a snapshot of this small town, the forces that shaped it, and some of its legends and traditions. Through this document, we aim to give a better understanding of Green River, encouraging people to look closer at the town, and maybe stay a little longer. Depending on the audience, this guide may be a celebration of a town or a glimpse into the life of this small desert community. Whatever the case, we hope this publication provides a well-rounded narrative of this place.
