||Carving Grand Canyon: Evidence, Theories,
and Mystery. Ranney, Wayne, 2005. Grand Canyon Association. 160pp.
The Grand Canyon is one of the Earth's most recognizable landscapes.
Though scientists have studied the canyon for more than 150 years, a
definitive answer as to how or when the canyon formed eludes them. The
one thing scientists do agree on is that the canyon was carved by the
erosive power of the Colorado River, but the river itself has carried
away the evidence of the canyon's earlier history. Carving Grand
Canyon provides a synopsis of the intriguing ideas and
innovative theories that geologists have developed over time. This story
of a fascinating landscape is told in an engaging style that
non-scientists will find inviting. The story's end however, remains a
mystery yet to be solved.

with hundreds of feet of cinder and ash, and another 3,000 square miles
with at least a foot of such material (Schullery, 2001). The eruption
from Novarupta and the collapse of Mount Katmai was the world's largest
volcanic event of the 20th century (Decker and Decker, 2001).

2006. Grand Canyon Association.
This yardstick places Grand Canyon's geologic story within the timeframe
of Earth's history to provide a deep-time perspective. All of geologic
time (4,500 million years) is shown as 1 yard, with one inch equaling
125 million years. What can happen in one inch? One inch represents
twice the span of the Age of Mammals (the Cenozoic) and two-thirds the
reign of dinosaurs (the Mesozoic). All events since the last ice age
10,000 years ago, occured within 0.00008 ince on this scale. Imagine the
minute lenght of our lives within the expanse of geologic time.
