Overview

But to those who linger, those who explore beyond the vistas to hike the Canyon's layers or raft the Colorado River in its depths, the Grand Canyon is a temple of personal discovery, a deep Himalaya that can only be experienced to be believed. And experience it you can through the words of our authors, who turn the adage on its head: "A story is worth a thousand pictures."

Notable authors include: Pagee Stegner, Barry Lopez, Terry Tempest Willliams, Ann Zwinger, Stewart Udall, and Colin Fletcher.
