Format: Hardcover
Of all of the books I've looked at I've never seen one that could really capture the Grand Canyon, until now. The photography is a masterful collection that shows just how vast the canyon really is. The words are mostly written by one of my favorite authors (Wade Davis) who seems to always be able to make the imagination take over, and at times you forget you are reading a book. The book contains pieces from the Imax, but like books do, it extends far beyond the reach of any movie.

I saw the movie about the making of this book at an IMAX 3D. If you can't go to the Grand Canyon this is the movie for you. The book is beautiful. We changed our plans from a cruise to a trip to the grand canyon based on the movie. I have ordered that as well. I can't express enough just how spectacular the pictures are and the information about the enviroment and how it is changing and not for the better. I would give this book more stars if I could.

Books are difficult to produce, and in the case of beautiful illustrated editions they involve the hard work of scores of dedicated people. Amazon reviews are important; the rankings are watched. It is not right that a rant, in this case a response to a film, should be allowed to register as if a serious appraisal of a book that is quite independent of the film.

Format: Hardcover
We took our nephew to the Imax version of this today and were all deeply disappointed. The movie panned in on Tara, the photographer's daughter, who is going off to college in a year. He laments how her biggest journey "has yet to begin" and more or less focuses on Tara and her friend "Kick" (a name?) while the Grand Canyon rushes by.

Then they offer cheesy hints at the end of their extravagant journey on how "we" as viewers can use less water. How condescending of those who "have known a canoe since they were old enough to walk" telling the hoi polloi how we can save the world. Cheap crap.
