Cussing like the cowboys she learned from, “Kickass Katie Lee” celebrates 97 year-old singer, songwriter, actress, and activist, Katie Lee. After abandoning a Hollywood career, she immersed herself in her true passion: floating, exploring, and singing on the Colorado River. When the idea of damming Glen Canyon was first floated, she opposed it. She is, and will always be, Glen Canyon Dam’s eternal, immutable warrior and foe. At 59, back-packing around the world, Katie met Joey. Since then he’s supported her every day, in every way. With humor, anger, and passion, “Kickass Katie Lee” skims highlights of a life well-lived.
