Bought for a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon - this book is very informative giving the background to the geology, natural and human history as well as the actual maps - just what I wanted. One very minor comment, I would have liked to see more detail of the 'off river' sights - there are a lot within a short walk of the river and these are barely mentioned or shown.

A must buy before rafting 20 July 2008
By R. Collins - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't let the cover fool you. This is an absolutely fantastic book. We just returned from a 7 day raft trip in the Grand Canyon. This book was recommended by our rafting company. It's easy to read and has lots of interesting and useful information on the canyon geology, plants and animals, and a graphical mile by mile guide to the river. It includes interesting historical notes and shows every rapid and side trip of interest. We made the mistake of not buying it before the trip. Another guest on the raft had this book and used it constantly. We were so impressed with the book that we purchased it upon our return. A must buy before a rafting trip in the canyon.

This Belknap Waterproof got a real test in the river. 27 Jun. 2009
By B. L. Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On the second day of our rafting trip through the lower Grand Canyon we got to far to the left on rapid 231 and our raft overturned dumping eight of us in the water along with our gear. I had Belknap's Waterproof Grand Canyon River Guide in my day pack which I though was secured, but the strap securing it broke and the pack went through the rapids, along with most of us, and was later fished out by one of the other boats. When I got it and checked it out it was fine other than the water causing the pages to stick together somewhat. But, it was in very good shape and proved to be a very useful guide throughout the four day trip.

I highly recommend this book if you are planning a trip down the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon. Besides being an excellent guide to the entire canyon experience and the rapids encountered, it also gives interesting historical information and many pictures of things you'll want to see for yourself. It's not a book for river guides, but is great for the rest of us.

Interesting, but ... 18 Jun. 2008
By Curious Cat - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is good if you're hiking the Canyon or going down the river as a passenger - lots of interesting information. However, the cover picture might lead you to believe it's an actual guide for running the river, and we didn't find it very useful for that. We ended up using the guide from RiverMaps LLC, and found that invaluable.

Absolute MUST if you're rafting the Canyon 6 Nov. 2008
By Mysterylover - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are taking a commercial raft trip down the Grand Canyon, buy this book before you go. It will become your Bible, your diary, your reference book, your constant companion. Many people on our trip were keeping journals and this book is indispensable for keeping daily information accurate; we marked where we camped each night and referred to it for mileage information, names of rapids--I can't stress enough that you MUST have this book. The few people who hadn't bought it borrowed copies constantly from others so they knew where we were as we traveled and could view what was coming up the next day. Its small size and waterproof pages make it ideal. Even our river guides had a copy.

Good for Grand Canyon raft passengers 5 Dec. 2009
By R. L. Waters - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is good for Grand Canyon rafting passengers, but it does not replace some of the better guide books for rowing the river.

We took this book along with the Rivermaps LLC guide book for our 21 day private trip. While this book has some good trivia type information about the river, a good wild life and plant section, and a good geologic section, it is no match for the Rivermaps LLC as a river runners book. It simply lacks critical information and detail about rapids.

For the raft passenger on a commercial trip I would recommend this book so you can follow along where you are and know whats coming up, and look up any plants or wildlife you see. Its also great to have river books like these to make notes in about where you camped, where you had a good hike, or even where you had a nice lunch. However if you are planning on rowing the river on a private trip this is no replacement for the Rivermaps LLC book.
