Story great as the Canyon is Grand!
What made the experience of listening to The Grand Canyon the most enjoyable?
Knowing the Grand Canyon well since I was a river guide for years made this story even more interesting and funny for me. Knowing people who get dizzy with fear of heights also makes me understand his point of view. Absolutely entertaining. We all pay taxes and get into situations that we underestimate. Entertaining even if you missed part of the story. Well thought out and woven with intricate contrasts of laughing and cringing in anticipation.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the thought provoking ending of this hilarious tale.
What about Donald Davis’s performance did you like?
I love his accent, being from the west myself. His accent seems to lend itself to story telling.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I almost peed my pants laughing the first time I heard this story. I still laugh every time I listen to the story. I am able to identify with the story on many levels.
Any additional comments?
It is great. Perfect gift for friends or enemies who you want to make your friends!

Although Donald Davis does an excelent job in describing his ride on a mule, the title of this audiobook, is misleading. Only half of the book is about the ride. The rest of the book is about Davis's childhood experiences, none of which are related to the Grand Canyon. I was expecting the entire book to be about the Grand Canyon, because of the title. That isn't what I got. Therefore, I was disappointed.
