GOING DOWN GRAND: Poems from the Canyon

Going Down Grand, the first full-length anthology of Grand Canyon poetry, gathers the voices of cowboys, explorers, river-runners, hikers, artists, geologists, rangers, and others whose words bear witness to this complex and magnificent place.

For readers on the river, the trails, the rim, or beyond, the poems on these pages will make fine canyon company.

GOING DOWN GRAND, the first full length anthology of Grand Canyon poems, gathers the voices and thoughts of explorers, cowboys, river-runners, hikers, artists, geologists, rangers, and others whose words reveal and bear witness to this complex and magnificent place.
