Join author Nathaniel Brodie as he discusses his new book "Steel on Stone: Living and Working in the Grand Canyon" at Powell's Books on Hawthorne. The event is free and open to the public.

In "Steel on Stone" Brodie recounts a season living in the canyon and draws from the eight years he worked on a National Park Service trail crew navigating a vast and unforgiving land. Embedded alongside Brodie and his crew, readers experience precipitous climbs to build trails, search-and-rescue missions, rockslides, spelunking expeditions, and rafting trips through the canyon on the Colorado River.
