What People are Saying about Twisted Trails in Grand Canyon
“The spellbinding realism of this story brought back vivid memories of my own trek to Phantom Ranch.”
Ron Monroe, Charlotte, Michigan
“Thank you for bringing back many vivid memories from my three trips into the Grand Canyon. Breathtaking was the word I used to describe my thoughts, when I saw it as a child, as a teen, and as an adult. This book blazed the trail for me to relive the unforgettable hike with my parents and four brothers to the bottom of the canyon! Once I started reading, I didn’t stop until the end of this exciting book. I recommend every child and adult read this series and learn of our National Parks, it may spark interest to visit these treasures.”
