Pete McBride will be presenting a talk on his new book, The Grand Canyon, at the 2019 TEDx conference at Dartmouth. This year’s theme, “Living Bridges,” will celebrate ideas, innovations and experiences that unite us as a global community and cut across obstacles and boundaries.
A self-taught photographer, filmmaker, and writer, McBride has spent two decades studying the world with a camera. He has traveled on assignment to over 75 countries for the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, The Nature Conservancy, and many more. He hiked the entire length of Grand Canyon National Park—over 700 miles without a trail to highlight the challenges our national parks are facing as increased development pressures are poised to change the Canyon’s iconic landscape.
