1. Grand Canyon : America's scenic treasure. / New Dimension Media, Inc.   Publication: Chicago, IL New Dimension . 1 videodisc (ca. 20 min.) : sd., col. ; 4 3/4 in. , When Theodore Roosevelt created the National Conservation Commission in 1908, it was more from the prodding of John Muir, the greatest admirer of Yosemite and founder of the Sierra Club, than from any other National Park or group. The scenic wonders of its glacially-carved Valley made it an early favorite of artists and photographers, and its California location made it easier to visit than the other two. It roots as a conservation site go back farther than even Yellowstone; Lincoln first proposed preserving its giant Sequoia trees, the most massive living things on earth. It became a California state park before Yellowstone was a national park, but soon followed as the third National Park in 1890. Muir said that it was full of Nature’s temples, comparable to Europe’s cathedrals and other historic buildings, making it the most sacred American place. His enthusiasm made him one of America’s most famous writers and mountain climbers, and he had several first ascents of peaks in the Sierra Nevada range, the largest and least-visited area of the Park. Muir dubbed the Sierra the Range of Light, and we experience this vivid light and color gloriously in this program. Availability: No items available:
