Product Description


Throughout history, the canyons of North America have been pioneered by Native Americans, Spaniards, soldiers, prospectors, surveyors, and river runners. These canyons are among the most spectacular in the world and provide unlimited opportunities for hikers, backpackers, climbers, and modern-day adventurers to explore the world below the horizon line. In Canyoneering, John Annerion offers a detailed, comprehensive guide to the fundamental elements of canyon exploration.

Inside This Book

First Sentence
Roamed, hunted, and tilled by ancient canyon dwellers such as the anasaazi (frequently translated to fit the romantic notion of "old ones," but actually a Navajo word meaning "enemy ancestors"), the canyons of North America remained a refuge for Native Americans long after the Anasazi abandoned their canyon realm circa A.D. 1150. Read the first page

A Decent Intro Guide 2 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book was interesting for somebody wanting to learn and become familiar with canyoneering and dessert hiking. However, in terms of providing practical data on good hikes, it is far behind any of Steve Allen's books. If you're new to this, then buy this and Steve's. If you've been there and done this, no need to reread the basics.

Excellant. American Canyoneering Association. 28 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
John's ADVENTURING IN ARIZONA has always been a favorite on our bookshelf, so we bought CANYONEERING the same day we heard it was out. Not a guidebook, but an excellant primer on canyon geology, geography, and history.

There are much better books... 14 Mar. 2006
By R. Griffiths - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is not a guide book or even a how to book but rather a hodgepodge of history, biology, geology ect. If you want to sit at home and read a little about the southwest this is your book, if you actually want to go out and explore get Canyoneering Arizona by Tyler Williams or any of the books by Michael R. Kelsey.

Appealing for serious-minded enthusiasts. Seattle Times 30 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
CANYONEERING by John Annerino is a how-to manual to the basics and the history of canyon exploration. Its discussion of geology, climbing techniques and storied canyoneers will appeal to more serious-minded enthusiasts.

Mutual respect for the Southwest canyons 8 Aug. 2000
By T. Gendron - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a two year resident of Arizona, I have embraced the wonder of the Grand Canyon and it's tributaries. This book ties together its legend, geology, hydrology and the spritiual. It erodes the sandstone and runs with ancients. Mr.Annerino has obviously been there, lived it as few have and was profoundly influenced by. Way to go.
