Comments

Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endsheet: "To - ______ - With happy memories of a - delightful ride out to Desert - View. - George Wharton James - April 27, 1920." Illustrated with photographs and a fold out map. "James spent a great deal of time at the Grand Canyon over a number of years and visited many out of the way spots. Because so much of the book records personal experiences it has special historical value and is in many respects one of the best of the Grand Canyon books." - Francis Farquhar.
