Why did I love this book?
This is absolutely the best “wow” book to take an illustrated journey from the bottom to the top of the Grand Canyon carved out over a billion years by erosive running water. The carefully researched illustrations go back and forth in time, as each new level of rock formation reveals past and present climates and habitats. Clues are provided by preserved traces of ancient life such as fossil skeletons, footprints, plants, teeth, and shells. The author/illustrator was “bit by the geology bug” and you will too after following a father and daughter on this hike of discovery.
