Publisher Description:

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.Most visitors to Grand Canyon simply visit the rim overlooks, wishing they had a geologist standing with them to point out and explain what they see. This book is even better than that, because it also includes details of the ecology and history of the Canyon, and you can take it home with you as an ongoing reference, and a wonderful souvenir of your visit. And there is nothing else like it available. Beautifully and thoroughly illustrated with clear and easy-to-read, logical explanations of how the Canyon and its layers formed, it is a must-have companion to everyone's Grand Canyon visit.Better still, the authors provide an alternative explanation to the traditional claims that the layers in the Canyon walls and the Canyon carved into them took millions of years of snail-paced geologic processes to form. Instead, they convincingly demonstrate that the evidence indicates that these layers were rapidly deposited in a global flood, and the Canyon was catastrophically carved by its retreating waters. I wholeheartedly endorse this Canyon guide and can't recommend it highly enough. Read it and you will broaden your understanding of the Canyon and enjoy your Canyon visit more.
Category Description for True North Guides:

Have you ever traveled to a beautiful National Park only to be disappointed at the amount of evolutionary content in the guide information? Master Books has created 3 gorgeous books that thoroughly take you through the parks mentioned. From the very beginning of the text, you get the Young Earth worldview. Pastor Don Landis (Chairman of the Board, Answers in Genesis) introduces Yellowstone, Dr. John Morris (President of the Institute for Creation Research) does the foreword on Zion and Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Canyon is introduced by Ken Ham (President of Answers in Genesis). You read about and see evidence that is consistent with what the Bible teaches about a global flood just a few thousand years ago. The full-color photos are just stunning and really made me want to see these places in person! The books themselves are hard cover with an inside spiral binding. You don't have to be planning a trip to use these books in your history, geography or social studies curriculum, or reinforce a Bible lesson with pictures. Hc, 190pp. ~Sara

I'm looking forward to reading about the Grand Canyon from a Biblical perspective. My family is planning a trip there next year, so this should give us things to look for that will reinforce what God tells us in His word.

We took this book with us to our day at the Grand Canyon! We loved opening up the book at each point at the Upper Rim and reading about the different rock formation names and indepth information about the creation of this area by post-flood catastrophe. We didn't even bother reading the park's boards that were posted throughout the hike.

This book also helped us be prepared for our day with lots of helpful tips on how to plan your trip so we could hit the ground running and fit in as much as we could (with three young kids in tow).

Highly recommend this book paired with the "Awesome Science" video on the Grand Canyon. Will really help prep your kids for their GRAND adventure!
