Every river runner should have a copy in his or her ‘ammo can.'” Roderick Nash, Professor of History and Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of Wilderness and the American Mind

“Everything in [the book] is immensely interesting to all who participate in a Canyon voyage, probably because, being human, we find the natural scene too strange and overwhelming to be full comprehended and enjoyed for its own sake alone.” From the foreword by Edward Abbey
