Overview


Visiting the Grand Canyon’s North Rim is a unique experience. Just ten miles across the abyss from the canyon’s busy South Rim, the two settings are worlds apart. Fewer than ten percent of park visitors find their way to the remote North Rim. Sublime beauty, rugged terrain, and quiet solitude await those who do.

Those who visit the park with this book in hand take a personal guide. In these pages author Stewart Aitchison shares his knowledge of the plant and animal communities, geologic forces, and human history that set this place apart. And the stories don’t stop at the park’s boundary. They stretch across the broad Arizona Strip to provide insights into the vast scenery of this little-known land.
