In Grand Canyon Women, author Betty Leavengood tells the humorous and heartbreaking stories of the heroines of the Grand Canyon - women who broke ground as architects, scientists, hikers, wranglers, waitresses, Native Americans, and park rangers.
From housewives in tidy rural homes to pioneering river guides, each woman is remarkable in her own way. And each has had a life journey shaped by the Canyon's awesome landscape.
