AbstractWhen Wilfrid Elders, an Emeritus Professor of Geology visited the bookstore of the Grand Canyon National Park, he saw the book "Grand Canyon: A Different View" on sale. After reading the book and discoverign that it presents a creationist's view of the Grand Canyon, asserting that it was formed by a direct consequence of the Great Flood, Elders wrote a scathing online review of the book, calling for the book to be removed from being on sale from National Park Service bookstores.
