The Grand Canyon was destined to become an American treasure. Unparalleled in its enormity, visitors come from all over the world to experience this great place. From prospectors and homesteaders to the railroads and their luxurious flagship lodges, vintage postcards and beautiful, present-day photographs are used to follow the development of tourism at the Grand Canyon and its influence as a National Park. Early promoters, including the Santa Fe and Union Pacific railroads, did much to influence the park as we know it today. Scenes include dramatic rim views, rugged trail-side settings, wildlife, the El Tovar Hotel and other historic properties made famous by the Fred Harvey Company, and the stone-sculpted visitor facilities crafted by Mary Colter. This book offers a timeless account of the park's scenic and historic significance while providing a treasured keepsake for those who love the national parks.
