    1. Kaylene Johnson on said:

      Here's what Jon Krakauer had to say about Canyons and Ice:In Canyons and Ice, Kaylene Johnson recounts the adventures of Dick Griffith, who has undertaken a series of remarkable wilderness journeys across Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and the American West over the past six decades. On at least one of these trips he barely survived. Stoical, utterly self-reliant, and attracted by challenges of immense scale, Griffith brings to mind heroic figures of an earlier, less craven era -- stalwart individuals [...]

      I met Dick Griffith for the first time a few weeks ago just before he set off on another rafting trip through Grand Canyon at the age of 87. A very pleasant, unassuming guy. His first Grand Canyon trip was in 1951 so that makes him probably the person with the longest river running career in Grand Canyon. There are other old riverrunners, Martin Litton comes to mind, but his first trip through wasn't until 1955 and he hasn't run it recently.I had read of his adventures in Grand Canyon before but [...]

    3. Deborah aka Reading Mom on said:

      This is the amazing story of an amazing man. A love story, an adventure story, a story of courage, resilience, and a life well-lived. Dick Griffith has walked across more of the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic than any person alive; more than 6,000 miles. The book also chronicles his travels in Mexico and the Western United States. At age 86, he still walks and rides (on horseback) the wilderness areas near his home. As Dick says "Every so often, it's just time to walk." Beautifully written with man [...]

      Ok. There is adventure and then there is ADVENTURE! i just finished the most incredible tale of Dick Griffith's mostly unheralded adventuring through river canyons and 6000 miles in the Arctic. First (and maybe only person) to traverse the Northwest passage on foot and unsupported. Oh my goodness! Cannot begin to describe. This is a MUST read. (Incidentally, Dick and his wife were friends with my parents when they lived in Poplar, Montana.) Anything I've ever done in ultrarunning or multi-day ra [...]

    5. Russell J. on said:

      The bio. of the adventures and mishaps of Dick Griffith is a must read for not only outdoor types, but also for anybody interested in just something good to read.

    6. Patricia Tennesen on said:

      Glorious story about a soulful, yet at times, cranky man, who sucked the marrow out of life. Well told, fast paced, easy read. Dick believes, "If you fear death, you aren't living." It is more than an adventure book, it is also a love story. Blessed with thousands of warm friendships throughout his 84 years, marriage to his soul mate who equaled his grit, a successful career as an engineer, and a love of adventure beyond anything Hemingway could of ever imagined.

    7. Heather on said:

      Received the book for free through First ReadsThis is one I still think about after some time reading it and really like the idea of taking an adventure. Not a big fan of the authors style, but I thought it was written in simple enough way that it read like a children’s book. The book was filled with great photos which aided me and being part of the venture.

    8. Deb on said:

      Wowza was this book adventure packed! It was difficult to read at times! Dick Griffith was on the edge of insanity in my opinion and was driven to try and do things that even died in the wool adventurers would think crazy. However, it made for a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed. The book is filled with good descriptive pictures to.

      not that well written. I knew Dick was amazing but I didn't realize how diverse his exploits have been.
