5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping! Fascinating!, June 17, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon (Paperback)
Like thousands of tourists before me, I recently stood on the Southern Rim of the Grand Canyon, nothing between me and a 3700 ft straight-drop free-fall, and asked our tour guide, "Has anyone ever fallen in there before?" I was afraid he would think I was morbid, and perhaps even call security. Instead, he said he had been asked this question by hundreds of tourists, just like me, standing mere inches from the edge of the world's most impressive canyon.
As we left the canyon that day, he suggested we stop by the Visitors' Center and buy "Over The Edge".
Over The Edge is a fascinating, gripping, and straight-forward account of every known death to have occured in the Grand Canyon, be it from suicide, murder, freak accidents, or boating trips gone wrong. Many of the factual details, and background histories that lead up to the actual moment of death, read like a cross between a police docket, and a John Grisham novel. The occasional sardonic humor in Over The Edge is an added plus.
Do yourself a big favor! Read Over The Edge!
