Ed Rosenthal’s gripping Salvation Canyon is about a desert hike gone wrong and a transformative, face-to-face confrontation with death…. His memoir shows how the desert that almost took his life also laid claim to his heart.
– Kristine Morris, Foreword Reviews

What Ed did next was inspired and most probably saved his life… He began to write….
– Bear Grylls, Escape From Hell

Retracing his lost wanderings, Ed identifies each arroyo, replays the colors and textures of sand and shrubs. The depictions are hyper-real. Exactified hallucinations. You’re in Ed’s mind and body as he mystically animates the landscape, as did William Blake’s “ancient poets.”
