One of the great wonders of the natural world, the Grand Canyon has long enticed visitors to gaze down upon its expansive beauty. For others, it is best observed from the river that flows through its majestic walls. In The Hidden Canyon, renowned photographer and river guide John Blaustein and environmental hero and best author Edward Abbey document their epic journey through the canyon from the vantage point of the Colorado River. Abbey’s humorous and lyrical journal, accompanied by Blaustein’s stunning photography, recalls the excitement and wonder of navigating the alternating calm and churning waters of the Colorado with a group of fellow adventurers in small wooden rowboats known as dories. This revised and updated edition, including dozens of new photographs and an afterword by Kevin Fedarko, captures the grandeur of the canyon and depicts their life-altering journeys through hundreds of miles of breathtaking landscapes, secret gardens, stunning wildlife, and demanding white water.
