The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon: A River Runner’s Map and Guide
by Larry Stevens
The Colorado River in Grand Canyon: A River Runner’s Map and Guide to its Natural and Human History, by Larry Stevens, is designed for running the river, for scribbling notes about rapids, camps or unexpected sightings and events, and to help inform or remind us of the vast temporal and spatial scope of Grand Canyon. Our knowledge of Grand Canyon is ever-expanding, and this guidebook is a work in progress.
“…Each of us experiences the Canyon differently, but our journey depends on what we bring to ti. The river can be the stage for working out personal dreams and evolution, and experiencing the joy and fear of being together and meeting group challenges. But also try to discover what the Grand Canyon itself is: step aside from the social interactions and listen to what the Canyon and river have to say. In other words, find quiet solitary time to sit and watch, or write, or draw. Such efforts greatly enhance one’s appreciation of this remarkable landscape. So pack some innocence and sense of adventure in with your extra hat, and get on down tot he river. Can’t you hear it calling?” Larry Stevens, Preface to the 1983 Edition
