Popular travel writer Roger Naylor returns to Sun City West at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22 in the Social Hall- West. Doors will open at 1:00 p.m. and all are welcome to attend. This year, Naylor will discuss his book, “The Amazing Kolb Brothers of the Grand Canyon.” Copies of this and his other books will be available for purchase at the venue.
He tells an essential and compelling Arizona story in his book. It’s a tale as epic as its backdrop, rife with adventure. When the Kolbs weren’t documenting history, they were making it.
It’s all captured in the book, “The Amazing Kolb Brothers of Grand Canyon.” So much more than a typically dry history, the rambunctious Kolb boys leap off the pages in this engaging read. Published by the Grand Canyon Association, the 154-page book is packed with drama, perils, feuds, near-death experiences, a cast of the canyon’s most colorful residents, and 190 of the famous Kolb photographs. This is an adventure story you must read to believe.
