Product Overview

"The wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols or speech, nor by speech itself," said John Welsey Powell. Though Powell''s observation may be true, "Grand Canyon Reflections" does capture the canyon in the words of some of its most eloquent visitors, from famous canyoneers like Edward Abbey to its lesser-known guests such as Charles Higgins. Interspersed with these quotes about the canyon are messages about the beauty of nature, the importance of preservation, and the essence of time from well-known scribes such as Emily Dickinson, Albert Einstein, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Their words are evocative reminders of the power of the Grand Canyon. Each page is dedicated to one quote, as well as a spectacular image of the canyon and its environs. With a convenient size, "Grand Canyon Reflections" will make both a lovely gift and a fine keepsake.
