The Grand Canyon (Arizona)
by Kenneth Shields, Jr.
Copyright 2000, Arcadia Publishing
From the back cover:
Covering the tribes that called the canyon home and the seekers who flocked to the area to find their fortune in gold and tourism, author Kenneth Shields exposes the human layers so often overlooked. Seen here are the native tribes who survived the harshest conditions of the canyon, including the Hopi, Havasupai, Navajo, and Paiute. Readers will recognize the images of popular tourist spots like the El Tovar Hotel and the Navajo Bridge, as well as the early conservationist faces of Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft.
Kenneth Shields Jr., the Native American author of Fort Peck Indian Reservation, served several years on the crew of white water rafting tours, taking visitors down the Colorado River from Lee's Ferry to Peach Springs. Compiling both his own personal photographs and those of the famous Dudley Scott collection, he presents an amazing visual journey into the Canyon's history, with many photographs never before published.
