Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grand Canyon Country explores the spectacular 277-mile-long gash in Arizonas red-rock country—noted by Theodore Roosevelt in 1903 as "the most impressive piece of scenery I have ever looked at"—and much more. Along with the geological marvels, amazing views along the popular South Rim, and higher, cooler North Rim, the book probes ancient Indian cultures, remote forests of the Kaibab Plateau, lonely reaches of the Arizona strip, and the multihued landscapes of the Painted Desert. All the wonders of the Grand Canyon are captured in this first-person narrative—from the awe-inspiring sunsets to hikes on treacherous trails to an exciting trip down the Colorado.
