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.
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.
