An excellent book, in my opinion. I found it while browsing in our library, and took it with me to the canyon. It describes in some detail a mule trip to the bottom and back, which my family took.
The author has a beautiful style and "voice", and although his facts are dated the spirit of the book makes it worth reading, especially if you're headed for the canyon.
