William Cathcart-Rake shares his memories of a half-century of
hiking in the Grand Canyon. During that time he spent sixty days
and walked five hundred miles below the rim. As he recounts his
thoughts and experiences of eighteen separate treks below the rim,
he includes many fascinating facts about the Canyon's natural and
human history. As the years go by, the author discovers that the
Canyon has more to offer than just being a challenging place to
hike-it becomes a sanctuary for reflection and renewal.
His time in the canyon is more than days below the rim, miles
walked, switchbacks negotiated, stream crossings, walking speed,
and pounds carried. Conquering the canyon-an impossible and foolish
quest-ceased to be a goal. He returned to the canyon because of the
effect it had on him, not because of what he could do in it or to
it. The canyon allowed him to discover his ability to persevere
despite discomfort, afforded an opportunity to learn more about the
natural world we live in, and gave him a deeper appreciation of the
need to seek the solace afforded by sauntering below the rim.
