Two veterans of decades of adventuring in Grand Canyon chronicle the complete and comprehensive history of Canyon misadventures. These episodes span the entire era of visitation from the time of the first river exploration by John Wesley Powell and his crew of 1869 to that of tourists falling off its rims today. These accounts of the roughly 700 people who have met untimely deaths in the Canyon set a new high water mark for offering the most astounding array of adventures, misadventures, and life saving lessons published between any two covers. Over the Edge promises to be the most intense yet informative book on Grand Canyon ever written.

I Am the Grand Canyon is the story of the Havasupai people. From their origins among the first group of Indians to arrive in North America some 20,000 years ago to their epic struggle to regain traditional lands taken from them in the nineteenth century, the Havasupai have a long and colorful history. The story of this tiny tribe once confined to a toosmall reservation depicts a people with deep cultural ties to the land, both on their former reservation below the rim of the Grand Canyon and on the surrounding plateaus. In the spring of 1971, the federal government proposed incorporating still more Havasupai land into Grand Canyon National Park. At hearings that spring, Havasupai Tribal Chairman Lee Marshall rose to speak. “I heard all you people talking about the Grand Canyon,” he said. “Well, you’re looking at it. I am the Grand Canyon!” Marshall made it clear that Havasu Canyon and the surrounding plateau were critical to the survival of his peop≤ his speech laid the foundation for the return of thousands of acres of Havasupai land in 1975. I Am the Grand Canyon is the story of a heroic people who refused to back down when facing overwhelming odds. They won, and today the Havasupai way of life quietly continues in the Grand Canyon and on the surrounding plateaus.

The chilling tome that launched an entire genre of books about the often gruesome but always tragic ways people have died in our national parks, this updated edition of the classic includes calamities in Yellowstone from the past sixteen years, including the infamous grizzly bear attacks in the summer of 2011 as well as a fatal hot springs accident in 2000. In these accounts, written with sensitivity as cautionary tales about what to do and what not to do in one of our wildest national parks, Whittlesey recounts deaths ranging from tragedy to folly—from being caught in a freak avalanche to the goring of a photographer who just got a little too close to a bison. Armchair travelers and park visitors alike will be fascinated by this important book detailing the dangers awaiting in our first national park.

"Among his Grand Canyon disciples, Harvey achieved legendary status long before his death due to natural causes in May 2002. Ever since the 1950s, his name had been synonymous with mastery of the wild and Byzantine Grand Canyon back country. Here was someone who routinely stood at the rim of this mile-deep gorge and decided to find his own way to the bottom .... his greatest legacy was what he created for others -- 1079 typewritten pages in which he carefully recorded his treks -- a massive document that represents the fruits of nearly three year's worth of days spent indefatigably striding through the Canyon's unknown regions. Typed in a dense, meticulous voice, each page of Harvey's logbooks reveals a sharpened mind capable of photographically memorizing the minutiae of each side canyon, every turn in the Canyon's great form, each route he had found through its cliffs. Eventually Harvey's inveterate chronicling would become the basics for the first ever Grand Canyon back country guidebooks: Grand Canyon treks (1970), Grand Canyon treks II (1975) and Grand Canyon Treks III (1984)" -- Prologue.
