LISTEN, BRIGHT ANGEL

The Grand Canyon -- its country and its rivers, in a vigorous, highly interpretative report. From geological history, through the period of discoverers and explorers, the defeat of Spanish colonization, the advent of pioneers, on up to the tourists of today, this covers the natural wonder of the country and the adventures and itself offered as explorers ventured further and further. The experiences of the daring who went by boat, -- Ashley, Powell, Brown-Stanton, the expert Kolb brothers, Clyde Eddy, the tragedy of the Hydes Indians and their cultures, the lack of permanent civilizing forces such as towns, communities, etc; the trails, the tourists, and their inability to comprehend the phenomenon in all its stupendousness...History, stories, personal interviews, this -- for all its impulsive, sometimes, brash approach -- has a vitality and interest that is wider than its purely regional appeal (Corle did Desert Century in the American Folkways' series.)
