Of Souls + Water

The Elder

At 68, Rob Elliot has guided 200+ trips on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado river in Arizona.

How do you want to be remembered, when this life joins the wind? What did you leave, in these chasms, upon these lives, young and curious? What did you write? What dust in the rain, sand in the rivers?


His deep curiosity leads him to the far arctic north, to the streets of inner-city DC, and to the majestic waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest. But what is he seeking?


The life of a woman – her life, her dreams, her legacy – painted on the canvas of still waters in deep canyons.


On the massive waves of Canada's great rivers, the Shapeshifter conjures his magic, transforming from a charming rogue to a wild creature in flight.


A renowned surfer leaves home in search of salvation, only to discover tragedy. Now he is reborn on the rivers of Idaho.


After many decades of running western rivers, he is a guide, mentor, patriarch and pioneer – a lifelong boatman and a living history of water, wind and human endeavor.
