A seasoned whitewater guide shares one of the world's most fantastic journeys, a raft trip through the Grand Canyon.
If 'the book' [on the Canyon] is defined as one which plunges the reader headfirst into the thrills, beauty and even occasional boredom of a run through the Canyon; as one which elucidates all the important natural and human history along the way; and as one which conveys some of the majesty and mystery of this extraordinary place, then Ghiglieri has come as close as anyone I know. . . . It makes one want to turn off the computer and head for Lee's Ferry.
Environmental History Review
A grand tale . . . His storytelling abilities and affection for the region are evident throughout this well-written book. . . . This is the single best introduction to a myriad of aspects of this most impressive place this reviewer has seen.
A mile-by-mile tour of the wonders of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado Rivera grab-bag of the sort of historical, geological, political, and anecdotal tidbits he apparently offers his white-watering guests, and a definitive source book for those who decide to take the challenge.
Excitement with a message.
