A bit too short for me, but very informative, for all that. Those who relish numerical facts will be overjoyed with this one, but I was more thrilled with the what and why of differences between the North and South Rims in character and climate. Overall, it seems to be a quick pocket guide for visitors from any country.
Charles O renders this piece very clearly and with a pleasant manner well suited to the material.

The book gives you information about the length, depth, weather, geology and plant life in the canyon. But don't know if I trust the data given as several of the touring tips are just incorrect. The Skywalk does not extend out of Grand Canyon National Park, it is on tribal land. And probably would have been helpful to mention that it is hundreds of miles from Grand Canyon Village, the main tourist area. And it implies you can get to Havasu Falls by car, which is impossible. Awkward phrasing, too many incomplete thoughts. Sounds like it was written by stringing together the NPS informational signs. Makes the down and back hike sound like a quick stroll. Mentions that you need a strong heart but not that the NPS strongly recommends not attempting it in one day, and advance reservations are needed and sometimes hard to obtain to stay at Phantom Ranch or to camp below the rim. The audio version suffers from a narrator that didn't get pronunciation guidance on the names of places, plants and native tribes.
