    One thought on “The Grand Canyon Reader”

    1. This is an anthology, so it lends itself to never quite finishing it It has been in the back seat of my car for about a year and a half - I'm really almost done. Really! 10-26-16: well! I found this again and finished it - only had two short little tiny chapters to go Parts of this book are sheer drudgery. Other parts are fantastic obviously not a "page turner" since it took me 3+ years to finish it!

    2. Interesting read. Newman talks about the Canyon in 3 categories: the rim, the river, and the people. Each sections starts with modern literature winding its way back to the oldest pieces authored. I enjoyed learning more about the Canyon, including the various Native American origin stories.

    3. 3★Some of the short stories was good. Others felt like I was reading one of my old school science books
