Stewart Aitchison has been exploring, studying, and writing about the Grand Canyon region for almost 40 years. When not writing, he escorts natural history trips on the Coloorado Plateau, Southeast Alaska, and Mexico's Baja Peninsula. He makes his home in Flagstaff, Arizona, with his wife Ann and daughter Kte.From Library Journal:
Naturalist author/photographer Aitchison combines a solid introduction to the Grand Canyon with a fascinating overview of the history, geology, and mystery of this national treasure. His focus is the remarkable natural and human history of the canyon and the forces that challenge it today. He successfully weaves his own views and adventures with those of early explorers, scientists, and artists while describing the flora and fauna of canyon ecology. He deftly addresses environmental issues like noise pollution from power plants and distant urban sources, the extensive impact of the Glen Canyon Dam, and the role of introduced wildlife. The number of books on the Grand Canyon is almost as vast as the canyon itself, but few present the subject so effectively for the layperson. Highly recommended.
