Steve Allen describes the Escalante National Monument as "a twisted, complex web of sandstone; a jigsaw puzzle of canyons, draws, gorges and washes." His guide, Canyoneering 3, is the latest installment in a series that helps debunk myths of desert hiking being little more than strolling over flat, sandy landscapes. Allen walks the reader through 23 hikes with necessarily wordy descriptions, proving that Escalante is as complicated as it is picturesque. The author is regarded as a legend among canyoneers; you couldn't find a better tour guide to steer you through. --Ben Tiffany

I enjoyed this book much better than Canyoneering 1 and 2 (which are still OK to good). Everything a guidebook should be.Published on May 17, 2007 by Scott Patterson
A much needed trail guide, but I'm concerned that those who use this book will end up trampling the fragile Escalante terrain. Read morePublished on February 25, 2002 by Joshua A. Gerak
