Exploring the Grand Canyon is a one-of-a-kind adventure. It is a World Heritage Site and one of the most amazing features on the face of the planet. The size and majesty of the Canyon is overwhelming, regardless of how many times you have viewed it, how many trails you have hiked, or how many river miles you have traveled. It is also a mystery!
Most will agree that the Grand Canyon was carved by water. But how and when is where the mystery lies. Was it formed slowly over millions of years or quickly in a catastrophic event? This debate falls into two camps, which hold to vastly divergent worldviews. This True North Guide examines the geological and ecological evidence and lets you decide which of those worldviews is best supported by the data.
• Contains 26 fold-out pages with maps, special overlook features, and more!
• Discover the Canyon’s wildlife, vegetation, fossils, geology, and history!
The author of the bestselling (and controversial!) Grand Canyon: A Different View, Tom Vail teams with co-authors Mike Oard, John Hergenrather, and Dennis Bokovoy to present a one-of-a-kind of exploration of the Grand Canyon. It is a massive, beautiful natural landmark carved out by water— but was the Grand Canyon formed slowly over millions of years or quickly after the Flood? This is the essential argument between the evolutionary and the creationist points of view. The Canyon’s four million yearly visitors are presented only the evolutionary view — that is, until now.
This unique handbook is a detailed guide to the beautiful sights and landmarks of the Canyon and is an essential tool for families and individuals interested in the park. The guide includes significant geological sites, suggestions for visitors (whether you have a lot of time or a little), biological and historical tidbits, and much more.
