From the brink of the Permian Cliffs in Utah, sandstone buttes are in the foreground with the Vermillion Cliffs and Jurassic white sandstone of the desert in the background. Small creosote bushes line the cliffs, with small grass basins between the topography

What began as a work of science has survived as an unparalleled work of literature and landscape aesthetics. The Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District with Atlas (Dutton's Atlas) revolutionized how modern society came to conceptualize and valorize the Grand Canyon.

This event is hosted by the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub in collaboration with AZ Humanities.
