In the footsteps of Desert Solitaire, these essays by an award-winning

writer and student of cultures sift decades of experience backpacking and

boating for a stance that questions the mainstream. More than mere

tales of bravado, they offer glimpses into the heart of the places explored,

with the Grand Canyon as their center of gravity. Vivid, finely crafted, shot

through with humor, self-effacing while deeply opinionated, No Walk in

the Park shows what it means to meet nature on nature's terms. Read it at

home in an armchair, or at a river camp, or stuff it into your pack before

you go wandering.


Join this author on a night hike to the great chasm's bottom; trek forty days in

his company below one rim, or snowshoe along the other; visit a Hopi mesa

for a ceremony; marvel at hidden rock art; sip epic solitude; tag threatened

fish; and float next to Glen Canyon's slickrock or Niagara-size fleeting falls.
