The Story of Grand Canyon National Park
The remarkable forces of erosion created this 2,000 mile spectable in Arizona. And they are still at work today, sculpting monumental scenery & natural habitat that is alive with the varied wildlife that call the canyon home. The immensity of the Grand Canyon is profoundly moving, & its effect was not lost on Theodore Roosevelt when he established it as a parkland in 1908. Beginning with Major John Wesley Powell's explorations, the historical background of this video is enriched by a never before filmed sequence of Shaman's Gallery - a significant find of rock paintings created by the Anasazi (Ancient Ones) - dating between 2000 B.C.-A.D. 1. The canyon's astonishing story, profound beauty, diverse wildlife & magic light show are captured.

|display_description||"No geological feature on earth evokes a wider spectrum of human emotions than does the Grand Canyon. But it is more than a chasm, it is alive with mule deer, mountain lions, coyotes, bighorn sheep, wild turkeys, blue grouse, blue heron, desert tortoises, and the rare kaibab squirrel, found only in the Grand Canyon. Long before the spanish arrived, the Anasazi (Ancient Ones) lived here. Included is an exclusive segment never before filmed, of Shaman's Gallery, a significant Anasazi find of rock paintings dating between 2000 B.C. and A.D. 1."|
