If you want a book that relates to your trip some good ones are Monkey wrench gang, desert solitaire, adventures of huck finn, or cadillac desert.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. - Helen Keller

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

Sunk Without A Sound - by Brad Dimock, its the story of Glenn and Bessie Hyde.
There's This River - by Christa Sadler, she has compiled and edited a bunch of guide stories of the river.

"The Very Hard Way" This is the biography of Bert Loper early explorer of the rivers of the Southwest. He died on the Grand at 80 something years old. Not the best written book, but very interesting never the less.

I second There's This River. On a recent trip down there on a layover day we took turns reading the short stories out loud to the group. It was a great book to have and I think the only reading most of us had done on the trip.

If you like humorous adventure travel writing, Tim Cahill's work is excellent light reading.Take an old classic you always wanted to read but never got around to.I read ' The Count of Monte Cristo',' Animal Farm',and ' Lord of the Flies ', recently.There is good reason why they are classics .

Mike you should be forced to read 'Wuthering Hieghts ' at a park n'huck for that comment.Reading good Grand Canyon long unk.

I am suprised no one has mentioned "Over The Edge, Death In The Grand Canyon" The author has compiled a complete list of all the deaths in the canyon and categorizes them by type: fall, deydration, drowning, lightning, etc. And has interesting stories/anecdotes. Then again, maybe some of your group might not like that kind of reading. It is suprising how few of the deaths are from rafting.
