Format: Paperback
This NG guide is rich with photos of the canyon's majesty, vegetation, and wildlife, but short on history. Much of the book detailed the author's voyage down the river. Having bought this book at the Grand Canyon I can say with authority that the photos in no way capture the beauty and magnificence of the Canyon. While there I couldn't stop staring into it and walking around to various views. The light of the day changes everything and gives a whole new perspective. Looking down into the canyon calls you to explore. One day I'm hiking down there.

There is much more mystery and intrigue to the Grand Canyon than is contained in this book. Overall, just OK.

The National Geographic guides suffer from a desire to be all things to all travelers. As such, they provide an appropriate introduction to the areas they cover. There are, however, better guides with better photography available; better books of history of the natural wonders of our country. This volume is no exception. It makes a good coffee table book and, if you're only barely thinking about traveling to the canyon, may very well whet your appetite.
