About this title


Side Canyons, a fictionalized account based on journal notes taken during a trip on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, is a tale of intimate relationship with the earth and the personal evolution of an impressionable woman in nine challenging, life-changing days. The grandiose, inspirational setting of the river and the canyon, coupled with an intricate drama of the human heart, provides an unsurpassed story revealed through daily narrative, poetic musing, and prose reflection. Side Canyons is a sensual slice-of-life adventure about exploration, discovery, recognition, and acceptance of both internal and external landscapes, a journey into unknown territories where even the most sedate reader will be swept away.

Laurie Wagner Buyer currently lives in Woodland Park, Colorado, where she's working on poetry, creative nonfiction and fiction manuscripts, presenting workshops for writers and speaking at various venues across the country.

From Booklist:

Laurie is invited by her old friend, Angie, to go on a river trip through the Grand Canyon with three other women. She is reluctant to leave her Montana ranch and taciturn husband. Making the trip could jeopardize their marriage, but she decides to go when he doesn't seem to object, and Angie insists. Laurie brings her journal, and she recounts her journey with great emotion as she feels herself connecting to her new surroundings with the help of the expert guides. Laurie feels herself expanding and reaching out to the land, the beauty of which the guides truly understand, but the camaraderie among the women starts to deteriorate, and Laurie finds that she may not understand her friend Angie as well as she thought. The vivid details bring the landscape and the thrill of rafting into focus as each traveler is affected differently by the environment, experiences echoed in the poetry Buyer includes in this spiritually angled tour of a revered place, an autobiographical novel that brings the Grand Canyon's unique beauty to life.
