The Amazing Kolb Brothers of Grand Canyon

Roger Naylor’s new book celebrates adventuring photographers

Travel writer Roger Naylor has released his latest book, The Amazing Kolb Brothers of Grand Canyon. Ellsworth Kolb arrived at Grand Canyon in 1901 with younger brother Emery Kolb soon following. Pioneers in the fledgling tourism industry, they set up a tent at the head of the Bright Angel Trail and began photographing tourists as they clip-clopped into the canyon on muleback. For nearly eight decades, these intrepid brothers explored and photographed Grand Canyon from rim to river.
