Frommer's Grand Canyon National Park
by Alex Wells
The Grand Canyon is an overwhelming place, vast in size, depth, beauty, and appreciative hordes. Alex Wells is passionate about the Canyon, and along with a wealth of useful information, he imparts his ardor for the 277-mile park, from the smallest ant lion to the impressive half ton elk. He details the best drives, views, and bike rides, where to watch for wildlife and whom to contact for raft trips, the best places to lodge, dine, picnic, and camp, how to get there, when to go, and what's available for visitors with disabilities, pets, or children. From South Rim to North Rim, getaway towns to backcountry trips, Wells covers camping, sports, the flora, fauna, and ecosystem comprehensively and clearly. Wells's guide gives perspective on the magnificence, delineates the options, and provides a handle on just what kind of visit you'd like to arrange, whether it's a quick rim view, a day hike, or a wilderness backpacking excursion. --Stephanie Gold -

The Man Who Walked Through Time
by Colin Fletcher
The Man Who Walked Through Time is a remarkable account of a journey both physical and spiritual. It is also a record of the Grand Canyon as it was before the massive influx of tourism. Fletcher's descriptions of the spectacular geography, the wildlife, and the remnants of much older cultures serve to remind us that the Grand Canyon has been around longer than humankind and may well outlast us.

The Last Canyon
by John Vernon - An historical novel.
Late in the spring of 1869, a 35-year-old Civil War veteran and nine companions set forth on a voyage that would take them along much of the length of the Colorado River, beginning in Wyoming and ending below the Grand Canyon. In this novel, John Vernon capably reconstructs their journey, adding dramatic nuance to an expedition that has long engaged historians and biographers. The bare historical facts are these: John Wesley Powell and his party made their way downriver, bouncing over churning rapids, climbing steep canyon walls, scaling seemingly impassable mountains--hard work, and made more difficult by the fact that Powell had lost his right arm seven years earlier at the Battle of Shiloh. Along the way they gathered information and provisions from local Indians, argued among themselves over how best to proceed, and suffered calamities great and small. The journey ended prematurely four months after it began when three disgruntled members of the party left, only to be murdered in a canyon in southwestern Utah. Vernon elaborates on these data while remaining for the most part true to them. He imagines, for instance, what those over-the-campfire arguments that so divided the party must have been about, giving fire and grit to Major Powell's matter-of-fact journal entries, and he considers the voyage from the point of view of the Ute and Navajo peoples whom Powell and company encountered along the way. Vernon's dialogues are sometimes a little too neat, their anachronistic language sometimes distracting. But he captures something of Powell's brooding personality as well as the perilous nature of his trailblazing journey "through deep gorges, rushing waters, bottomless silences, tall and craggy cliffs built by artists celestial." --Gregory McNamee
