Shoeless Literary News: My Essay on Hiking Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim Barefoot Is Anthologized

September 24, 2014

Thanks to Rick Kempa’s editorial dedication and expertise, the new (and first!) anthology of essays dedicated to the Grand Canyon hiking experienced has just been published by Vishnu Temple Press. (“Vishnu Temple” is an iconic rock formation in Grand Canyon.)

I am grateful that Rick saw potential in my essay “Rim to Rim, Barefoot,” and after acting on his wise words of revision advice, I was able to deepen it a bit (not as deep as the Canyon, but just a bit more in terms of layers of meaning . . . ha . . . it’s hard to write about Grand Canyon without drifting into geological punning) . . . and now it’s joined a fine collection of all kinds of stories about this place that fascinates so many of us.

The publisher is offering free shipping through the end of September . . . and . . . we’re having a publication party and author reading on Oct. 4 in Flagstaff, AZ (see the Vishnu Temple Press web site for details.)

Happy (Grand Canyon) Trails!
