Webb's book is by no means a typical repeat photography book. Rather, it is an eloquent tribute to the physical geography of the inner Grand Canyon that uses repeat photography to instruct about the canyon's geography and history. . . . A thorough, integrative book that is at the same time readable, humorous, and utterly convincing.
Journal of Geography
This book is an excellent treatise on historical and geological changes within the Colorado River's riparian zone and contains a wealth of information on natural history, river running, and the myriad of changes in the Grand Canyon.
Journal of Arizona History
The level of detail captured in the Stanton and Webb photographs is remarkable. This detail and the author's interpretive skill give the reader a better understanding of the ever-changing world of the Grand Canyon than any coffee table book devoted to color photography of the canyon country.
Utah Historical Quarterly
Extremely well written and researched . . . The level of detail in the photographs is extraordinary and provides an unparalleled opportunity to study and evaluate changes in the Grand Canyon over the past one hundred years.
For a geologist these views are elating. Page after page of repeat views make study of this book an adventure.
