Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Describing mind-altering adventures on the Colorado Plateau, Paul Rea hikes through Canyonlands, Grand Gulch, Havasu, and Zion canyons, and rafts the Colorado, Dolores, Green, and San Juan rivers. He explores and celebrates the enchanted, colorful desert in sensuous, introspective, and playful ways. "Seated on a mossy rock, nude," he writes, "I wave to the California Zephyr across the river. Many years ago, riding this train home from the Summer of Love, I first beheld the red rock country in this very canyon." Even the earth comes alive in Rea's prose: "The dark gneiss seethes, then shimmers like a translucent veil across the bare-boned rock." He tells how he repeatedly returned to the desert, evolving from "greenhorn" to "greybeard" as he became bonded to the landscape. These exciting, life-affirming, and thought-provoking stories are so seductive that readers will get lost in them, just as easily as a hiker traversing the landscape itself.
