Exploring the Grand Canyon is a one-of-a-kind adventure. It is a World Heritage Site and one of the most amazing features on the face of the planet. The size and majesty of the Canyon is overwhelming, regardless of how many times you have viewed it, how many trails you have hiked, or how many river miles you have traveled. It is also a mystery!

Most will agree that the Grand Canyon was carved by water. But how and when is where the mystery lies. Was it formed slowly over millions of years or quickly in a catastrophic event? This debate falls into two camps, which hold to vastly divergent worldviews. This True North Guide examines the geological and ecological evidence and lets you decide which of those worldviews is best supported by the data.

  • Contains 26 fold-out pages with maps, special overlook features, and more!
  • Discover the Canyon's wildlife, vegetation, fossils, geology, and history!

Most visitors to Grand Canyon simply visit the rim overlooks, wishing they had a geologist standing with them to point out and explain what they see. This book is even better than that, because it also includes details of the ecology and history of the Canyon, and you can take it home with you as an ongoing reference, and a wonderful souvenir of your visit. And there is nothing else like it available. Beautifully and thoroughly illustrated with clear and easy-to-read, logical explanations of how the Canyon and its layers formed, it is a must-have companion to everyone's Grand Canyon visit.

Better still, the authors provide an alternative explanation to the traditional claims that the layers in the Canyon walls and the Canyon carved into them took millions of years of snail-paced geologic processes to form. Instead, they convincingly demonstrate that the evidence indicates that these layers were rapidly deposited in a global flood, and the Canyon was catastrophically carved by its retreating waters. I wholeheartedly endorse this Canyon guide and can't recommend it highly enough. Read it and you will broaden your understanding of the Canyon and enjoy your Canyon visit more.

Fascinating
Review by Melissa
This book is fascinating. Filled with helpful into and interesting facts. The colorful photos and illustrations add to its interest. It’s so rare to find a book about the Grand Canyon from a Biblical perspective. I hope the authors will consider making more of these books for other places.
Great Guide Book
Review by Tam4Truth
I have been to the Grand Canyon many times. I love that this guide book makes you feel like you are there experiencing the Grand Canyon first hand! I also like that it supports a young earth.
Informative Guide

Review by Jennifer
My 13 year old is already sucked in! I’m wishing we could do a Grand Canyon trip this year now. Very engaging book with great info. We’re loving this resource so far.
Great Guide
Review by Sarah
I am from Arizona and my children do not remember living there and I thought it would be fun to do a study on the Grand Canyon with them. This is a beautiful book that explains the Grand Canyon in great detail as if you were going there on a field trip or hiking trip. There are tips and suggestions as well as evidence of the flood to be on the lookout for when visiting.
Historical Science!
Review by Brittany
I love historical science (and observational science)! This book has already come in handy during our Ancient History study this year (with 7 year old daughter) and I am really looking forward to using it when we go on our family Grand Canyon Field Trip! I can fully trust anything that MB publishes!
Beautiful book!
Review by Frogs
We have 3 True North books and love them all! We haven't made it to one of the parks yet but enjoy learning through the books and have used the book to help plan ideas for a big trip!
Awesome
Review by Kari
This book is spiral bound and very sturdy. My children and I love going through it together to learn about this amazing landmark left to us after the flood.
Must have guide to the Grand Canyon
Review by Heather
We bought this book many years ago before we ever knew that we'd be living in Arizona. Since then, we have used this book multiple times for trips to the Grand Canyon. We have lent it out to others and have received excellent feedback from everyone that has used it or read it prior to heading to the Grand Canyon.

Your Guide to the Grand Canyon: A Different Perspective is a tour book of the Grand Canyon. The first four sections give you information about the Grand Canyon, activities, locations, maps…

Section Five takes you from location to location in the Grand Canyon giving you in-depth information about what you are looking at (with labels for the different things you are viewing). We loved this section. We were able to take the book to each location and know exactly what we were viewing. For the areas where we drove, I would read about the new location as we drove to it. When we were hiking, we would read about the location once we arrived.

Section Six talks about the importance of the Grand Canyon. Section Seven delves into geology and gets into the creation vs evolution debate and various dating methods. Section Eight talks about fossils found in the canyon. Section Nine is about the ecology of the park, and what one would expect from both the creation and evolution viewpoints. Section Ten goes into the history of the Grand Canyon. At the end of the book, you’ll find additional resources as well as a glossary of terms.

If you’re headed to the Grand Canyon and want a really good resource book that has the creation viewpoint, I highly recommend this book. Even if you aren’t able to head to the Grand Canyon, this would be a resource to have in your personal library to learn more about the Grand Canyon.
