Written by Pete McBride, Foreword by Hampton Sides, Introduction by Kevin Fedarko, Contribution by The Grand Canyon Association
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience--an end-to-end, rim-to-river exploration of the Grand Canyon.
Award-winning photographer Pete McBride, along with best-selling authors Kevin Fedarko and Hampton Sides, takes us on a gripping adventure story told through stunning, never-before-seen photography and powerful essays. By hiking the entire 750 miles of Grand Canyon National Park--from the Colorado River to the canyon rim--McBride captures the majesty of as well as calling us to protect America's open-aired cathedral. This is the most spectacular collection of Grand Canyon imagery ever seen, showing beauty from vantages where no other photographers have ever stood. It will also highlight the conservation challenges this iconic national park faces as visitation numbers grow and development pressures surrounding it mount. This photography will inspire and remind us why we protect such a cherished public space. Proceeds benefit the Grand Canyon Association, and an accompanying documentary will tentatively release at Sundance in 2018--all in time for the national park's centennial.
