Saints + Scoundrels of the Grand Canyon
Flagstaff Author - Julie McDonald
While training to be a Grand Canyon tour guide, I heard so many great stories I had never heard before! This quick, one hour read, has over a dozen fun stories about the colorful characters who have spent as little as a few weeks or as long as 70 years at Grand Canyon. Some are historic, dating back to the 1800's and some are more recent. The stories are both educational and entertaining! An excellent read for children and teens as well.

Julie McDonald is a lifelong resident of Flagstaff, Arizona and has become the local authority on Southwest Pioneer history, and gardening in the challenging terrain of the Inner-Mountain West. Julie’s growing collection of books on the stories, struggles and triumphs of pioneer women (and some men too) have captivated readers throughout the world! Her books contain short stories on these unsung heroes, scandalous villains, and noble adventurers of the 1800’s and early 1900’s, as they overcome the many trials and obstacles that went along with daily life in that era. Although their lives were challenging, Julie adds humor and optimism to each story, a reflection of her own personality. Julie’s highly successful gardening and her thriving “Farm Stand” in which she sells the abundance of her produce, has brought her celebrity status in the community and have made her a pioneer in her own right! Julie shares her ideas and methods for successful gardening in this region in her first book, “Farm Your Front Yard”. Her “Adventures” series reflects her deep faith in Jesus as she guides readers on their own faith journeys through topics such as forgiveness, giving and prayer. She has four adult children and six grandchildren, by far her most expensive hobby!
