Grand Canyon Conservancy Publishing Program

What We Do

Grand Canyon Conservancy creates award-winning books and merchandise featuring Grand Canyon and the Colorado Plateau region. We offer adult and children's books, with new and revised publications introduced yearly. GCC works with topic experts to develop books about various Grand Canyon-related themes such as natural history, geology, wildlife, prehistory, American Indian history and culture, pioneer history, hiking, and more. 

As the official nonprofit partner of Grand Canyon National Park, Grand Canyon Conservancy provides private funding to enable the park to raise the margin of excellence for educational programs and preservation, build innovation in park services, and support the necessities not currently funded by federal dollars. Proceeds from our publication sales directly support Grand Canyon National Park.



In 1981 Grand Canyon Conservancy (then called Grand Canyon Natural History Association) published the first edition of Bibliography of the Grand Canyon and the Lower Colorado River as a record of seemingly endless articles, reports, accounts, literary works, maps, memoirs, and visual media that highlight Grand Canyon and its surrounding areas.  Today, the bibliographical resources of the Grand Canyon and Lower Colorado River Regions of the United States and Mexico are updated and maintained by editor Earle E. Spamer.
