People from all over the world flock to see the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It took the Colorado River nearly six million years to carve a channel of about one mile deep and 275 miles in length. Traveling by mule to the bottom is a five-hour ride, which is richly rewarded by incredible vistas, animal sightings, fossils, and ancient rock paintings. The alert rider might be lucky enough to spot coyote or lizards, bighorn sheep and various birds. The painted symbols were created by the ancient Havasupai Indians whose ancestors still live and work in the Canyon today. The ride into the Canyon is breathtaking and so are the illustrations. Vibrant color, texture, and stunning perspectives of the decent are sure to take your breath away! This award-winning collaboration will inspire and fascinate the reader. It clearly illustrates why the Grand Canyon is indeed one of our country's great national treasures. 1997, Walker Publishing, Ages 5 up, $15.95. Reviewer: Laura Hummel—Children's Literature
