Mexico’s Copper Canyon Country

A Hiking and Backpacking Guide to Tarahumara-Land

M. John Fayhee, who attended Western New Mexico University, began his explorations of Mexico’s Barrancas del Cobre — Copper Canyon — in the early 1980s when he took a detour from a multi-month overland trip to Central America. Armed with little more than a hand-drawn map, he tentatively ventured into the depths of North America’s most-extensive canyon system, which is home to the world-famous, long-distance-running Tarahumara Indians.

Over the course of the next decade, Fayhee hiked hundreds of miles in the Barrancas. He related tales of those hikes is a book that was first published in 1989 and updated and expanded in 1994.
