Summary
"A wealth of adventures and discoveries await the readers of this, the first-ever anthology focusing on the Grand Canyon backpacking experience. In it, twenty seven writers offer authentic, close-up views of what it is like to be afoot on particular days in particular places within the vast canyon wilderness. Many of their stories illustrate as well a truth that veteran canyon hikers come to know: time spent beneath the rim, out of the press of human time, can change who you are and redirect how you live your life"--Page ix
