Reviews - What do customers think about Over the Edge?
An enjoyable little book on trips to the Grand Canyon Jan 22, 2000
I wasn't expecting much from this book so I was pleasantly surprised. I was afraid the funny stories would turn out to not translate well to text ("Well, I guess you had to be there"). The book is fun light reading, interspersed with casual discussion of the geology and formation of Grand Canyon layers and the canyon itself, and of the Anasazi who lived there and the artifacts that remain. Not to give any spoilers, but the sketch and story from the chapter titled "From Here You Can Be Seen Forever" is a hoot, as are the stories of hapless newbie hikers carting along everything from canned foods to crowbars to a hair dryer. ;-)
Makes me look forward to taking a tour with ICR someday. I've known a couple who visited Mt. St. Helens with them and they really enjoyed it.
