Description
Canyons and Ice: The Wilderness Travels of Dick Griffith is an epic tale of adventure as well as a thoughtful reflection on what motivates a man to travel the hinterlands of silence across some of the most remote places on earth. Griffith helped pioneer rafting in the Grand Canyon, was the first to descend the dangerous Barranca del Cobre in Mexico, and eventually traversed the Northwest Passage solo and unassisted, traveling more than 6,000 miles across Alaska and the Canadian Arctic. Amidst this call to wilderness came a romance that would change Griffith’s life.
