From the Inside Flap
The remarkable classic of nature writing by the first man ever to have walked the entire length of the Grand Canyon.
From the Back Cover
In 1963 Colin Fletcher became the first man to walk the length of Grand canyon, below the Rim. It began with a dream, when he and a friend detoured from a cross-country trip to take a hurried look at the great natural wonder. Standing on the Rim, surrounded by the profound and almost mystical silence, Fletcher knew that something had happened to the way he looked at things. He also knew that the Canyon, with its depths and distances, cliffs, buttes, and hanging terraces, beckoned to him, calling him on a journey that would challenge both his body and his mind.See all Product Description

It took him two months to complete his journey, and, as he states, if he was in a race, the trip probably could have been done in a month. But the more leisurely approach allowed for a number of "down" days lolling around camp.Read more ›
