We love reading about places where we spend time, especially books that give us an inside look or a perspective that goes beyond common knowledge. Hard to find with something as written about as the Grand Canyon, but Todd Berger managed to give us some very unique stories about this fabled place. For all the stories of the Kolb brothers, the too-many folks who decide the Canyon should be their last resting place and dive from the rim, Berger manages to give us stories like L. Wing and OK Parker who decided in 1914 to drive to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Their mode of transportation was a Metz roadster: a bucket-seated, twenty-two horsepower demon that looked kind of like a Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang go-kart with bicycle tires, writes Berger. Its a raucous ride, and I wont spoil the ending by revealing whether they made it or not (regardless, the publicity stunt didnt help the Metz car last... I mean, who has ever heard of that car today?)Bergers selections are excellent, but he too often reveals too early how an adventure ends, which, sadly, takes the edge off the suspense we would otherwise feel. Sometimes its a little hard to follow the narrative, so a touch of editing would have helped in spots, but overall, the book is a good summary of some of the lesser-known episodes in the Grand Canyon.
