THE GRAND CANYON READER, edited by Lance Newman
Lance Newman worked as a river guide while pursuing a PhD at Brown University. He is now a professor of English at Westminster College in Sale Lake City. His experience as a guide provided a unique perspective for the readings included in this anthology. Lively tales written by unschooled river runners, unabashedly popular fiction, and personal memoirs stand alongside finely crafted literary works that represent five centuries of human experiences in the Grand Canyon. The cover is a painting by Grand Canyon river guide Kimo Nelson, and the first selection is the "Grand Canyon," poem by rafting icon, Amil Quayle. Each and every selection is absorbing and never boring. You will love this book, and so will anyone else who has an affinity for the Canyon.
