From the Inside Flap:

While millions of people visit the Grand Canyon each year, relatively few of them are lucky enough to float through it on the Colorado River. This amazing journey is the subject of The Hidden Canyon, a landmark portrait of the Grand Canyon experienced at river level, and now revised, updated, and including more than two dozen new photographs. In over one hundred remarkable images, photographer and former river guide John Blaustein captures the awe-inspiring beauty of the canyon and the excitement of running some of the wildest rapids in North America. The accompanying journal kept throughout the trip by wilderness hero Edward Abbey offers a lyrical and humorous description of the action as a group of dories (small wooden rowboats) alternately floats and charges through spectacular canyon landscapes, sculpted rock formations, and tons of rushing white water.

From the Back Cover:

Water topples upon us, filling the boat in an instant. The force of the river carries us through the first wave and into a second, deeper hole. . . . I think I can almost see bedrock bottom. The third wave towers above us. Far above. The Great Wave. Heavily our water-loaded boat, askew, climbs up its face. Never makes it. As the wave hits us from the portside our dory turns over with the grave, solemn, inevitable certainty of disaster. No one says a word as we go under. --from Edward Abbey's journal
