Vintage Books / Random House., 1972. V-852. Originally published by Alfred A Knopf, 1968.. Mass-market paperback. Very good. No dust jacket as issued. Minor blemishing. Tightly bound. No spine creasing. Slight edge wear.. 1 Mass-market (rack) paperback, slightly larger. Glued binding. 239 p. Audience: General/trade. Colin Fletcher is believed to be, notes the cover info, 'the first man ever to have walked the entire length of the Grand Canyon'. That significant and courageous 2-month achievement in planning and survival is recorded here, complete with a list of supplies. He certainly is the first to publish this effort. Welshman Fletcher is an accomplished hiker and nature writer in the world arena. Centuries earlier, perhaps other explorers had done so without a publishing company waiting at the end. The publisher also notes this was more than an adventure, but was also a spiritual odyssey for Fletcher. Anyone who has even spent an hour on the rim of the Grand Canyon will understand that likelihood.

The author recounts his two-month hiking tour of the Grand Canyon, which won him the honor of being the first man to traverse Colorado River's giant gorge.
