Grand Canyon National Park: Tail of the Scorpion

Book Description

Dear Diary,
I’m in a very unusual place: the bottom of the Grand Canyon. But it feels like we are at the bottom of the world . . .
 
The Parkers, an intrepid family of four, are back for another exciting adventure in Grand Canyon National Park: Tail of the Scorpion. Amid the magnificent beauty of the park, ten-year-old twins James and Morgan and their father brave a steep twenty-one-mile hike from rim to rim. As they face heatstroke, exhaustion, and even a run-in with scorpions, they wonder, “Can we make the grueling climb to the top?”


Each book in the exciting Adventures with the Parkers series for kids 8–13 explores a popular national park and is packed with adventure as well as engaging and educational facts about nature, outdoor safety, and much more. Vacation has never been this fun!
