From the inside jacket:

"Following the Colorado River course first explored in 1869 by John Wesley Powell and his small band of spirited men, The Hidden Canyon vivifies the 277-mile voyage along this exuberant water route. John Blaustein's photographs, beautifully true in color to the incandescent hues of the millennia-old meandering canyon walls, also focus on the plant and animal life, the hidden gorges and side canyons, and, of course, the rapids, notably Lava Falls, one of the world's most awesome phenomena.

With an extra measure of pungent wit, Edward Abbey updates Powell's diary with his own journal of the eighteen-day trip, a trip marked as much by unanticipated events as it was by the expected. And Martin Litton, who has had occasion to enjoy the Canyon in closer detail than most, provides the right blend of historical and technical data to assure smooth reading from beginning to end of the book." 

Hard cover with color photographs throughout. Signed by photographer John Blaustein.
