“The Grand Canyon needs to be saved by every generation. The Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim… aims to capture not just the familiar grandeur but also some of the fragile idiosyncrasies of the between-lands, as an argument for leaving them alone.”
— The New Yorker
"The Grand Canyon by self-taught Colorado photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride sprang from his 2015 expedition with Kevin Fedarko (author of The Emerald Mile): The two men backpacked 750-plus, mostly trail-less miles from Lees Ferry to Grand Wash Cliffs. Much to his credit, McBride does not shy from 'non-traditional' motifs that challenge viewer expectations: tangled fence-wire, South Rim light pollution, Havasupai protesters, or a composite of jetboats and choppers clogging the river section called 'Heli Alley.' The overall impression, however—reinforced by grit-and-dirt adventure photography—is that the Grand Canyon still offers much-needed relief and refuge, and not just to Homo sapiens."

“Named one of 'The best photo books to gift this holiday season. Freshly compiled work from some of the adventure world's best photographers.'"
— Outside Magazine
"The best Christmas books for travelers (2018)... Some 5.9 million people a year visit the Grand Canyon, but fewer than a dozen have walked it from end to end, a journey-without-trails of some 750 miles. The photographer Pete McBride did so with his friend Kevin Fedarko, a writer and former river guide in Grand Canyon National Park. With the park’s centenary approaching, they share what they found in the canyon’s remote ribs, and report on the continuing struggle between conservation and exploitation (they logged 363 helicopter flights in the space of eight hours). As McBride puts it, 'If we cannot protect this space, the seventh natural wonder of the world, what can we protect?'”
