Written for all levels of hikers (including armchair ones), this book is a careful description of the (mostly) unmaintained trails on the South Rim. Spangler provides accounts of her own experiences on each of seven trails over a six-year period during every season of the year. Her personal narrative is enriched with natural and human history, contemporary and historical anecdotes, geological information, and a great appreciation for the beauty of the Grand Canyon. It complements well the more numerous descriptions of river travel, such as David Lavender's River Runners of the Grand Canyon ( LJ 9/1/85). Appendixes include cross-sections of rock formations, detailed trail data, addresses, etc. Photos not seen. Recommended for recreational collections, especially those emphasizing the Southwest.
