Synopsis

The film features the human history of the Grand Canyon area, being from the home of first Native American inhabitants to a major tourist destination. It portrays reenactments of the Anasazi people, European explorers, and the first expedition led by Major John Wesley Powell. The ending of the film features flight with a bird's-eye view following a lone, orange ultralight aircraft piloted by someone in a white helmet.
