We were on a dream assignment floating for nine days on a Colorado River trip in the Grand Canyon.  This is where we met naturalist/photographer/filmmaker/writer Charlie Craighead.  We have became close friends and a collaboration was born.  It took awhile but the three of us, Charlie, Kathie and myself returned to the Park a number of times and finally completed the project that became The Grand Canyon, An Artist's View.

 

A NATURE LOVER’S EXPLORATION
OF THE GRAND CANYON

 



This comprehensive work by famed wildlife illustrator John Dawson takes the reader on an intimate journey along the rim, down the trails, and into the hidden recesses of the Grand Canyon along the spectacular sweep of the Colorado River.

It is one of the most spectacular of adventures.

Coming face to face with the wildlife and the plant life, the immense scope and the tiniest environmental detail contained in one of the last true wonders of the world – through Dawson’s painstaking, true-to-life illustrative techniques combined with the sensitive interpretative text of naturalist Charles Craighead – makes this volume a true collector’s edition to be treasured throughout the years
