Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Anderson takes readers on a guided tour from the rim of the Grand Canyon down to the valley floor. One can almost imagine traveling downward on the back of a mule as the colorful narration describes the geological history that created the distinct layers of rock. The author interweaves information about the canyon's flora and fauna as well as the history of its human habitation. A Havasupai creation legend about the origins of the Grand Canyon is included. Brief chapters are highlighted by attractive, captioned, color photographs. Clear, informative, and interesting prose and pictures make this a solid selection for libraries.Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
