In an effort to share the Grand Canyon’s uncharted glory and shed light on the myriad threats it faces, writer Kevin Fedarko and photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride set off on an audacious and demanding adventure: to transect the length of the canyon on foot. This trek is not the pair’s first adventure together, but it may be the toughest. Along their grueling 600-mile journey, McBride and Fedarko encountered unprecedented danger, discovered unparalleled beauty, and met a number of guardian angels passionately concerned about the welfare of this American icon and, incidentally, about their welfare and success as challenged wilderness through-hikers. Enjoy a rare look at the Grand Canyon through their eyes, in all seasons, as few have seen it before.
