I Am the Grand Canyon is the story of the Havasupai people. From their origins among the first group of Indians to arrive in North America some 20,000 years ago to their epic struggle to regain traditional lands taken from them in the nineteenth century, the Havasupai have a long and colorful history. The story of this tiny tribe once confined to a toosmall reservation depicts a people with deep cultural ties to the land, both on their former reservation below the rim of the Grand Canyon and on the surrounding plateaus. In the spring of 1971, the federal government proposed incorporating still more Havasupai land into Grand Canyon National Park. At hearings that spring, Havasupai Tribal Chairman Lee Marshall rose to speak. “I heard all you people talking about the Grand Canyon,” he said. “Well, you’re looking at it. I am the Grand Canyon!” Marshall made it clear that Havasu Canyon and the surrounding plateau were critical to the survival of his peop≤ his speech laid the foundation for the return of thousands of acres of Havasupai land in 1975. I Am the Grand Canyon is the story of a heroic people who refused to back down when facing overwhelming odds. They won, and today the Havasupai way of life quietly continues in the Grand Canyon and on the surrounding plateaus.

The Grand Canyon is famous for its rock layers, multihued bands of limestones, shales, sandstones, granites, and schists that have made the canyon one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. But in many of those layers, the Grand Canyon contains a veritable sea of fossilized life, from ancient stromatolites in the Grand Canyon Supergroup layers to trilobites in the rimrock Kaibab Formation to ancient reptile trackways preserved in the Coconino Sandstone. An Introduction to Grand Canyon Fossils introduces readers to the vast evidence of ancient life in the canyon and to paleontology, the study of fossilized life. Written in an easy-to-read style and heavily illustrated with diagrams and photographs, the book offers readers access to worlds of ocean shallows, windswept sand dunes, and swampy forests that once covered the Grand Canyon region and have left evidence of their presence in fossils. An Introduction to Grand Canyon Fossils is the only book of its kind focusing on the fossils of the national park, and it will be a delight to readers young and old fascinated by evidence of life hardened in stone.
