Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"John Annerino is one of a handful of photographers with a real empathy for the West. His work has an edge to it, reflecting the sheer size and power of his subjecta subject he treats with respect and love. This land, which is so much a part of the American psyche...is as raw and exciting in Annerino's work as it is in our mind's eye."Newsweek

Grand Canyon Wild takes you beyond the handful of scenic vistas which have defined the popular concept of the Grand Canyon. A well-known author and photographer of the American West and old Mexico and other coffee table books, Annerino takes you on a visual and spiritual journey down into the land below the canyon's rims. His photos and prose lead into the heart and soul of the canyon, highlighting the historic expeditions, local history, and legends of Native Americans and explorers alike, who bravely lived, and died, within the canyon's perimeters. Full-color throughout, 4 maps, bibliography, notes to photographs.

Book News Annotation:

Independent author and photographer Annerino was raised in the American West, and has logged some 5,000 miles exploring the Grand Canyon by foot, raft, and rope. For this text, he followed ancient Indian routes and the historic trails of Spanish padres and Mormon missionaries to capture what lay beyond the all-too-familiar calendar scenes, coffee table books, and picture-postcard images taken from the Canyon's most frequented scenic viewpoints. Illustrated with 100-plus spectacular color photographs. No subject index. Distributed in the U.S. by W. W. Norton.
