Kevin Fedarko ’83 Publishes Book, Is Featured in New York Times Book Review

In May 2024, Kevin Fedarko 83 published his second book, A Walk in the Park: The True Story of a Spectacular Misadventure in the Grand Canyon, which details his 750-mile odyssey on foot through the heart of America's most magnificent nation park with his good friend, the National Geographic photographer Pete McBride. 

Fedarko's book was featured in New York Times' Book Review by Blair Braverman. As Braverman concludes her review: "The book never shies from its paradoxes: I did this so you don’t have to; I did this because you shouldn’t; I shouldn’t have done this, but it’s good I did. By the time the men complete their yearlong hike, they’ve endured and overcome so much that they’re briefly mistaken for plane crash victims. But in truth, they, and we, are pilgrims on holy ground. Readers will be tempted to visit the canyon just to keep the book’s spell alive longer — and to feel Fedarko’s company in their awe."
