New Grand Canyon Guidebook In the Mail

River Runners for Wilderness would like to thank all of you who have purchased advance copies of the guide written by boaters for boaters. All advance order guides were mailed via USPS on Thursday, February 26, 2003.

Preview copies have gotten rave reviews for the wealth of information presented in an easy-to-use format. Copies of what is now being called the definitive Grand Canyon river guide are now in stock and ready to ship.

The cost of this river guide is $29.00 ($25.00 each, plus $4.00 shipping and handling per Guide). Checks or money orders only please. Guidebook sales will benefit River Runners For Wilderness, a not-for-profit grassroots advocacy group seeking equitable access to a wilderness river running experience in Grand Canyon.

Tom Martin, author of Day Hikes from the River, and Duwain Whitis, publisher of RiverMaps map books, have teamed up to write a new guidebook titled Guide To The Colorado River In The Grand Canyon - Lees Ferry to South Cove. This is the only guidebook to the canyon with USGS topographic map backgrounds, printed at their original scale, with additional map detail added in an easy-to-read format. In addition, it is the only guide with maps extending to South Cove in Lake Mead. Each map shows campsite locations and names, rapids, scout points, river miles and other points of interest. The accompanying mile-by-mile text describes all campsites on the park inventory (and some not on the inventory), with campsite pull-in information, including best summer shade and winter sun locations, along with geological, botanical and historical points of interest. All of the significant hikes, rapids and scouting points are also described, with photographs on almost every text page. The Guide is 8.5" X 14" spiral-bound to lay flat. The 108 pages are printed on tough waterproof and tear resistant synthetic paper, published by Vishnu Temple Press.
