really liked it
Read in October, 2007

This was an excellent read, if not a little morbid. Definitely recommended before and during a trip to the Grand Canyon as it gives a good insight into how tourists foolishly take for granted that nature can kill you. Plenty of stories and statistics that help you plan your journey better, especially in regards to the amount of water you need to take should you decide to do any hiking below the rim. Further, it demonstrates how easily one's common sense can disappear when facing one of the wonders of the world- people have fallen backwards down the canyon while trying to take photos of the lodge they were staying at!
A very interesting read and one that might help save your life when going to any national park or wilderness area.
