HOW 4 FEET OF PLYWOOD SAVED THE GRAND CANYON by Jerry Borrowman. I was fascinated with the stories in this book. He talked about events that I had never heard of before, and it sucked me in. Little known events give a greater perspective to what really goes on in the world. I loved learning about these stories, and my family has loved me retelling them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
