Stephen J. Pyne (au). This book is both a chronicle of discovery, recounting the achievements of explorers, geologists, artists, & writers, from John Wesley Powell & Clarence Dutton to Wallace Stegner, & a provocative explanation of how they turned the Grand Canyon into a symbol of American grandeur, & later of wilderness. Today the Grand Canyon attracts more than 5 million visitors a year, yet it continues to focus debate about the character of environmentalism & the relationship between humans & nature. By merging social, intellectual, political, & environmental history, this book provides a new understanding of the  Grand Canyon’s niche in the American psyche. Illustrated.
