Over a two-month period in 1963, Colin Fletcher became the first man to walk the length of Grand Canyon National Park below the rim of the canyon. Before his trip, no one was even sure whether a passable route existed through the whole canyon. In this book, he talks about his experience, how he accomplished his goal, and what he learned before, during, and after his trip.

I was really excited to read about this book when I first found it since I love nature and would love to have had this kind of experience; however, the book didn’t live up to my expectations for some reason. There was a lot of technical explanation and geographical descriptions that I didn’t really understand. I also think that the impression this kind of experience makes on a person isn’t something that can easily be put into words, so that may have been a reason the book fell flat for me. I did really like his explanation of how geographical time works on a completely different scale than human time. The idea that humans have existed for such a small part of the universe’s life is something that I’ve been running into a lot lately, and the Grand Canyon is just another example of the billions of years it takes for really significant natural changes to occur.

I thought I'd like this and at the very beginning, I did. But really, although the author did something pretty cool, it wasn't overly daunting. There was not the amount of danger you come across in some other extreme nature challenges (or if there was, he didn't clearly give that impression. And really, it wasn't a book so much about the canyon, but about Colin Fletcher's own quest...and he annoyed me a little.

He went into so much detail about what he was carrying and little things he saw - he went into detail about how annoyed he was when he saw signs of man in the canyon at times, but he doesn't go into detail about what happened to all the trash he generated from supplies grabbed at arranged air drops. And there's no way he was carrying it out.

Beyond that, there was just a tone that ended up grating against my nerves. I could imagine he wouldn't be the best travel companion. I'd take Bill Bryson over this any day for the humor, or other more serious travel adventure for the level of talent in the writing and the lack of egotism. ( )

A great look at some on who spent a life walking while considering philosophy, history, and methodologies.One of my favorite saying from Colin is: Hell is where the police are Italian, the politicians are French and the cooks are English...... ( )
