The Next Generation Grand Canyon River Guidebook

River Runners For Wilderness is pleased to announce the imminent release of a "next generation" Grand Canyon guidebook written by boaters for boaters! Preview copies have gotten rave reviews for the wealth of information presented in a easy-to-use format. It's been called the definitive Grand Canyon river guide.

Tom Martin, author of Day Hikes from the River, & 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, 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, geological, botanical and historical points of interest. All of the significant hikes, rapids and scouting points are also described, with color 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 water proof and tear resistant synthetic paper. Published by Vishnu Temple Press.

The cost of this river guide is $29.00 ($25.00 each, plus $4.00 shipping and handling per Guide), with a tentative shipping date of February 27, 2003. Checks or money orders only please.
