Grand Canyon Survival: Gear & Garb
An eBook by Tony Nester
The Grand Canyon region is one of the most visited wilderness areas in the world. Many hikers embarking on a day trip or overnight outing are unprepared for the triple-digit temperatures, elevation gains, lack of shade and desert conditions associated with the inner canyon.
Grand Canyon Survival Gear & Garb prepares the hiker for backcountry emergencies that they may find themselves in while venturing beyond the rim. The book explains water and electrolyte requirements, strategies for coping with intense heat, preparing physically before your trip, essential survival gear for both short and long-term canyon explorations and the essential garb every desert traveler should have. Also covered are sections on common survival myths related to obtaining water from cactus and solar stills along with a helpful Q & A chapter for first-time visitors to the Grand Canyon region.
