FEATURED BOOK OF THE WEEK:
THE GRAND CANYON READER
edited by Lance Newman
The CRATE family was excited when Lance’s book was recently published. Lance worked as a CRATE guide in the early days of his rafting career while pursing a PhD at Brown University. He is now a professor of English at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. His love of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River and his experience as a guide, provided a unique perspective for the readings included in this anthology. Lively tales written by unschooled river runners, unabashedly popular fiction, and personal memoirs stand alongside finely crafted literary works that represent five centuries of human experience in the Grand Canyon. The cover is a painted by CRATE Guide Kimo Nelson, and the first selection is the “Grand Canyon,” poem by rafting icon and our life-long friend, Amil Quayle. Each and every selection is absorbing and never boring. You will love this book, and so will anyone else who has an affinity for the Canyon.
