Ken Sleight watched the place he called home, Glen Canyon, slowly drown under the waters of Lake Powell. That loss changed him from an old-school conservative into a radical environmental activist who will do anything to protect the canyons of the Southwest. He’s faced down raging bulldozers from the back of his horse. Monkeywrenched? He’ll never tell – but he was the inspiration for Seldom Seen Smith in his buddy Ed Abbey’s classic book The Monkey Wrench Gang. Now 90, he’s still fighting for Glen Canyon Dam to be brought down and the river freed.
