This is an excellent chapter book! The book gives wonderful descriptions of the Grand Canyon. It has rich language with many similies and metaphors. It is also based on facts. I read it every year to my second graders (even though it is written for intermediate students) and then we watch the movie. It is a tradition at my school for all second graders to listen to this story. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

I loved this book as a child, and as an adult I appreciate the accurate depictions of the Grand Canyon. I also loved her other horse-related books. All were beautifully illustrated by Wesley Dennis.
