Publisher's Summary

The Grand Canyon draws five million visitors annually and with good reason. This incredible natural wonder, which is 277 miles long and 18 miles across, offers breathtaking views and is rich in geology that dates back 170 million years.

Before you book your trip to see this naturally occurring wonder of the world, you need to listen to The Grand Canyon: Everything You Have Ever Wanted to Know About This Naturally Occurring Wonder of the World. This comprehensive guide will completely prepare you to get the most out of your visit. The guide includes information about:

  • Weather: It's always unpredictable, so be sure to check the most recent forecast. It can change rapidly.
  • Plants: Know what the flora you are looking at are called. The Grand Canyon is home to a richly diverse plant population of trees, brush, and flowers.
  • Animals: What kind of wildlife will you see? Many creatures call the canyon home. Mountain lions, bears, and rattlesnakes, oh my! No need to worry; just be aware they live there, and you are a guest in their home, so be on your best (safest) behavior when you visit. You will also see plenty of harmless animals like bald eagles, beavers, pinyon jays, and many kinds of lizards.
  • Activities: Hiking, backpacking, rafting, and the famous mule treks are just a few of the fun ways you can spend your days. This guide will give you some insider information on planning your excursions.

You must be sure to visit the Skywalk, as there is no view quite like it from anywhere else around the canyon. If you have a fear of heights, now is the time to face it because this is a spot you don't want to miss.

Keep your Grand Canyon guide handy on your phone or tablet, and be prepared to immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world.

    "Compact pocket guide for the traveler"

    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.
    This book was a gift

    "An interesting listen"

    This was much more technical then I expected it to be, but I still found it pretty interesting. I appreciate the attention to detail about all things Grand Canyon.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    "A Place I've Always Wanted to Visit"

    I've always wanted to see the Grand Canyon and have never had the chance to go. It's actually on my bucket list and I've been considering visiting there this summer so this audiobook was a real treat to listen to. It was very informative and I learned many things a person would need to know in advance of taking this trip. Had I gone without some of the info provided here in this book my possible trip could have resulted in missing out on several things. To me, this was better than a map. It's like an audio brochure.

    This book gives the background and history of the Grand Canyon which was carved out of the Colorado River Basin and is 5-6 million years old dating back to the Cenozoic period with over 40 layers of rock. That's ancient.

    You will learn the weather to expect when visiting the Grand Canyon allowing you to pack the appropriate clothing. The weather can be different in different areas. You will learn some of the plants and trees that grow in and around the Canyon as well as the wildlife such as bald eagles, several types of rattlesnakes, reptiles, and in some places the black bear and cougar or mountain lion.

    Another valuable bit of information is the types of things you might want to do such as hiking, mule rides, or rafting. This is important information that a person needs to know as some of these things require advance reservations. It also tells you some of the waterfalls and some places you would definitely want to see while on your vacation. Don't waste a trip by being unprepared. This was a great book by Xavier Zimms.

    Charles Orlik does a great job passing this information along to the listener in a clear way. I like his voice and it's as if you're sitting right there listening to him. There was a lot of good info packed into this book and he keeps it at a good pace plus it's a good length to take along with you for quick references. You really can't go wrong with this one. Recommended.
