Book Synopsis



Rivers wind through earth, cutting down and eroding the soil for millions of years, creating a cavity in the ground 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep known as the Grand Canyon.

Home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals that have lived and evolved within its walls for millennia, the Grand Canyon is much more than just a hole in the ground. Follow a father and daughter as they make their way through the cavernous wonder, discovering life both present and past.

Weave in and out of time as perfectly placed die cuts show you that a fossil today was a creature much long ago, perhaps in a completely different environment. Complete with a spectacular double gatefold, an intricate map and extensive back matter.



Review Quotes




A Caldecott Honor Book
A Sibert Honor Book

"With vivid imagination, a crystal-clear grasp of the facts, and brilliant artwork, this illuminating look at
one of the planet's most fascinating features will entrance young readers."--Booklist, starred review

"Chin (Island: A Story of the Galapagos) packs the geologic history of the Grand Canyon into a stunningly illustrated story of a magical father-daughter hike."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This representation captures the essence of field geology: artifacts of the earth are indeed conduits to the past, brought to life through scientific imagination. The perimeters of some pages are filled with delicate sketches and diagrams in muted colors reminiscent of the dry rock landscape."--Horn Book, starred review

"Just watching the scenery go by in Chin's sumptuous watercolors could be satisfaction enough for many readers, but textual commentary on the rock formations, as well as the ecological communities of flora and fauna in the changing climate zones, form the basis of a multidisciplinary science les- son far more engrossing than kids are likely to encounter in a classroom."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"An outstanding introduction to one of the world's greatest outdoor wonders, with much to offer elementary students about Southwestern biomes, sedimentary geology, and the profound pleasures of observing nature."--School Library Journal, starred review

This book is absolutely beautiful and the geological information is presented in the most engaging ways. The author shows all of the different environments within the Grand Canyon as well as the past and current state them. Highly recommended this book, even for adults!
