They've taken the Santa Fe Railway all the way to the Supreme Court, and won; they nearly built a controversial dam across the Colorado River; and now, they've constructed a glass skywalk overhanging the western edge of the Grand Canyon.

He told Arizona Public Radio's Daniel Kraker why he spent ten years researching and writing the book.
