"Why do nearly five million people travel to the Grand Canyon each year? What are they looking for? Do they find what they want?"--BOOK JACKET. "Mark Neumann's answers to these questions are as compelling as the panoramic vistas of the canyon. In On the Rim, he uses words and pictures to delve into the various meanings of this international tourist attraction and cultural icon for the people who live, work, and travel there. These fascinating stories are accompanied by contemporary and historical photographs, many taken by Neumann."--BOOK JACKET.
