"Sandstone Spine: Seeking the Anasazi on the First Traverse of the Comb Ridge" is the latest book from David Roberts, one of adventure writings most accomplished authors. On 1st September, 2004, three middle-aged mates set out on one of the last geographic challenges never before attempted in North America: to hike the Comb Ridge in one continuous push. The friends - Roberts, renowned climber, Greg Child and wilderness guide, Vaughn Hadenfeldt - take on the Comb not just for the physical challenge, but to seek out seldom-visited ruins and rock art of the mysterious Anasazi culture. Each brought his own emotions on the journey: the Comb ridge would test their friendship in ways they had never before experienced.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The photographs are fantastic and leave you wanting more of them.--dirtbrothers.org
A worthy tale...An entertaining read that informs about history and anthropology as we participate in a desert excursion.--Jackson Hole News & Guide
If serious hiking is your interest, then Sandstone Spine is a must, and destined to become a classic.--Tulsa World
"The author offers compelling accounts of [his] Southwestern exploration, artfully capturing and articulating what it feels like to 'discover' a remote and pristine ruin... Ultimately, this forceful work of creative nonfiction testifies to the continued capacity of ruins to reveal cultural, as well as autobiographical truths. [It] also speaks to the resonance of the Southwest as a locale filled with enigmatic and haunting antiquities, as the photographs in [Sandstone Spine] attests... [This] book offers eloquent and powerful evidence of the fact that no culture is exempt from extinction."--Don Scheese, of Gustavus Adolphus College "ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature & Environment "
A must-read for serious hikers and explorers, armchair and boots on the ground types alike, that contemplate visiting this wonderful resource.--Moab Times-Independent
