A Year in the Grand Canyon
A Collection of Experiences and Colorful History from a Lifetime of Exploring the Grand Canyon
by Dave Elston



$15.95

"Dave Elston's passion for spending time in the beautiful Grand Canyon wilderness has produced a series of riveting stories that makes it a must-read for anyone who's ever been bitten by the "Canyon Bug." His quest to spend 400 days in "Nature's Grandest Architectural Masterpiece" over a period of years turned him from a green novice into an experienced veteran.
Elston's stories also provide many important lessons in survival. Nature can be very unforgiving. The vicissitudes of the wilderness including the capricious elements, ankle-twisting terrain, a lack of preparation, not understanding one's limitations and a myriad of others have endangered or cost the lives of many who fail to give it proper respect.
This book should be on the shelves of anyone who-s ever hiked the challenging trails of the Grand Canyon or ever wanted to."
- Marshall Trimble, Arizona State Historian

Dave Elston didn't let finding a dead body on each of his first two hikes in the Grand Canyon stop him coming back. Thankfully, he hasn't found any more, just lots of beauty in nature. His enthusiasm for hiking and backpacking the Grand Canyon and sharing it with his family and friends shows in his writing.
