The essays are: 'Titan of the Chasms' by C.A. Higgins (pgs. 2-9); 'The Scientific Explorer' by John Wesley Powell (pgs. 9-22); 'The Greatest Thing in the World' by Charles Lummis (pgs. 23-27). Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs.
"Let this great wonder of nature remain as it now is. Do nothing to mar its grandeur, sublimity and loveliness. You cannot improve on it. But what you can do is keep it for your children, your children's children, and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see." - Theodore Roosevelt (p.27). Farquhar 60b.
