Geologists have studied Grand Canyon for more than 150 years, yet a single definitive answer for how or when the canyon formed remains elusive. Many aspects of the canyon's formation are known, and new studies, using modern techniques, can tease out the cryptic clues that hold answers. Grand Canyon was carved largely by the erosive power of the Colorado River, but just how the river accomplished its task is a spellbinding story that is sure to appeal to your sense of discovery.

Carving Grand Canyon provides a clearly written synopsis of the intriguing and innovative theories geologists have advanced about canyon formation. Updated with ideas that emerged from the most recent symposium on Grand Canyon geology, this new edition reflects the latest thinking on the canyon's formation, supported by dozens of new illustrations and photographs. The story of a fascinating landscape is told in an engaging style that nonscientists will find inviting. The story's end, however, remains a mystery yet to be solved.
