This exciting and colorful title investigates two of the most important processes in the formation of canyons—deposition and erosion. Students will also learn all about the three basic types of rock on Earth—igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic—and the role these rocks play in the formation of canyons. Using stunning photography, Canyons explores slot canyons, and ocean canyons, as well as giving an in-depth look at the most famous canyon of all, the Grand Canyon.
