Reviews

"The fourth book in this great award-winning National Park series brings yet more of the excitement, adventures, and history we've come to enjoy. Time travel, secret codes, passwords, and discoveries are unraveled first hand by Bubba Jones and his sister Hug-a-Bug. Traveling through time, they experience the wonders, dangers, and people that forged the world as we know it today. Truly a great story that will teach with enthusiasm. Sure to hold interest with its easy conversational tone. It draws and engages the reader." —Story Monsters Ink

"Together they are at the helm of their educational adventure, distant historical events made easier to grasp through these character's eyes. This is a book that drums up awe and fascination, fuels dreams of a Grand Canyon hike one day, and inspires young audiences to keep reading. What a joy it would have been for those of us who grew up 20 years ago to have a Bubba Jones of our own. Alt's national park series will hold steadfast for generations[.]" —Svea Conrad, Arizona Daily Sun
