I just took the 1969 edition of this very handy book with me on an 8-day motorized trip down the canyon. Another rafter had this 1991 version, which is even better. I was able to tell where we were at all times -- to know what rapids were ahead, to know how far we'd traveled that day, and to know the names of the side canyons as they passed, among other things. The book's explanation of the Canyon's geology is the most understandable I have seen. Best of all, the book is waterproof, so it was completely accessible throughout the trip.

Seattle, WA The Mountaineers, 1993. Paperback First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated. First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to wrapper covers; binding square and secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 255pp. Trade Paperback. This guy has got to be one of my favorite mountain literature authors. Child is the most literate climber in history, far more readable than any of his peers. His excellent writing skills put you right in the action with dialogues, exacting characterizations and dry humour born from too many harrowing first ascents on big peaks. His partners are well known and it's great to get a peek at their personalities through Greg's eyes. Reading his books is like going along on the expedition on his shoulder, seeing the climb, the preliminaries, the peripheries of surrounding socieites and experiences. Best of all, his multi-focus shows that he is aware of more than just the climb or his own performance--while bringing it all to life with technicalities and human drama, compassion and pragmatism, and he is clearly concerned to be compassionate and consistently fair to everyone involved. I love this book. Awesome and motivational.

Thru Hiker's Guide to America: 25 Incredible Trails You Can Hike in One to Eight Weeks.

By E. Schlimmer .

Camden, ME Ragged Mountain , 2005. Paperback First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated. Fine in Wraps: binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 244pp. (Thru-Hiker's Handbooks Series). First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated. Trade Paperback. Hands down, the definitive guide to long-distance hiking in the United States. Schlimmer knows his stuff- he's a well accomplished long-distance hiker (like myself) and former Appalachian Trail caretaker and ridgerunner (a dream job). He chose some "underdog" trails here because they are NOT the Appalachian Trail. Type in "Appalachian Trail" on Amazon and see how many titles come up. I counted 293 of them. But how many books are out there on the Baker Trail, Mountains-to-Sea Trail, International Appalachian Trail, Shore-to-Shore Trail, Wonderland Trail, et al. Not many. The "Thru-Hiker's Guide to America" fills the long-distance void. With 25 trails to choose from located in more than half of the 50 states, Schlimmer's witty tone and informative style will make your backpacking wish list grow and grow

High Exposure: An Enduring Passion for Everest and Unforgiving Places.

By David Breashears.

New York, NY Simon & Schuster: Touchstone, 2000. Paperback First Ed Thus; First Printing indicated. First Ed Thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good: shows light wear to extremities; mild rubbing; fairly severe spine lean; faint soiling to the outside edges; a crease at the middler of the rear panel. Binding secure; text clean. Despite these flaws, remains clean, sturdy, presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 319pp. Indexed. Black & White and Color Photographic Illustrations. Foreward by Jon Krakauer. Trade Paperback. This first-hand account of the frightening and absolutely breath-talking adventures on the slopes of Mount Everest during the ill-fated 1996 American climbing expedition is terrific reading. Brashears, a professional cinematographer, had already climbed Everest previous to this expedition, and his prize-winning documentary IMAX film about the ascent of Everest is itself both entertaining and edifying, as it holds no punches regarding the reality of life on the mountain. Neither does this book, which certainly proves that the author has a future in journalism is he chooses to pursue it. His colorful and well-written autobiography also does great service in helping those of us who prefer to have our adventure while sitting in the comfort of our reading room just what it is that draws people like him to the pursuit of mountaineering. Indeed, his gleeful enthusiasm is close to being contagious; this too is testimony to Brashears' ability to write convincingly and well. His approach is so colorful as to blur the lines between biography and fiction, and I often found myself having to remember that all this really did happen. It is that well written. His beginnings, too, seem like the stuff of popular fiction; a childhood of humility and privation, his early exploits in climbing on a virtual shoestring, his wildcat days in the oil field, all seem to fit this persona that wangles his way into situations and then has the gumption, intelligence, and character to pull it all off. He progresses with climbs both domestically and internationally, finally reaching into Nepal and Tibet. Always with him is this sense of humor on the one hand, and a willingness to take risks that most of just would turn away from. One senses he is heading for even more danger and self-discovery. Of course, the key to the book is his description of the events leading up to, including, and after the tragic catastrophe and loss of several climbers' lives in the ascent of the mountain. Busy himself with both the climb on the one hand and the IMAX filming of it on the other left him little time for instant reflection or remorse. These things probably helped him to focus on what had to be done to go on with the successful climb, the discovery of the bodies, and a safe descent to the camps far below. I found myself sorry to reach the final pages of his book, and I for one hope to find more writing from this talented filmmaker, writer, and climber in the future. I can highly recommend this book, and I think you will enjoy it, as well.
