A WALK IN THE PARK The True Story of a Spectacular Misadventure in the Grand Canyon

by | Read by Kevin Fedarko

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Listeners can sense the excitement, awe, and frustration in the author's chronicle of his "walk" through the Grand Canyon. Kevin Fedarko does double duty as author and narrator, and his narration adds notes of authenticity to the production. His voice is clear and pleasant, and he changes things up to fit particular passages. For instance, he increases his pace slightly as he recounts navigating the Colorado River in a raft. And he slows it down during poetic descriptions of his surroundings. He gets louder to express experts' incredulity at his plan to navigate the canyon on foot without years of training. And he grows quieter in describing Native Americans' spiritual ties to the canyon. The audiobook is part travelogue, part history, part autobiography--and wholly enjoyable.
