    In an effort to share the Grand Canyon’s uncharted glory and shed light on the myriad threats it faces, writer Kevin Fedarko and photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride set off on an audacious and demanding adventure: to transect the length of the canyon on foot. This trek was not the pair’s first adventure together, but it may be the toughest. Join Kevin Fedarko and Pete McBride as they share the struggle and beauty of their estimated 875 mile walk through one of our planet’s most spectacular places.

    Award-winning photographer, writer, and filmmaker, Pete has traveled to over 70 countries for a number of publications and companies, including National Geographic Society, Outside magazine, Patagonia, and The Nature Conservancy. A passionate conservationist, Pete has been named a “Freshwater Hero” by National Geographic. Kevin is the author of the Emerald Mile and his work has been featured in National Geographic Adventure, Esquire, and Time, among other publications.
