Yours 'Til Niagara Falls
Author: Brenda Z. Guiberson; illustrated by William Low
A thrilling, fact-filled history of Niagara Falls, following its evolution from the age of dinosaurs to its future disintegration.
Millions of years ago, Niagara Falls was not a waterfall. Back then, ocean covered the land.
Eighteen thousand years ago, all that water was locked up in ice.
Then 12,500 years ago, the ice melted! It gushed into lakes that flowed into a river that plunged over a steep cliff. Crash! Roar! Sploosh!
That was the noisy beginning of one of the world’s most majestic waterfalls. Experience the incredible history of this misty, mystical cascade of water in Yours 'Til Niagara Falls, told from the perspective of Niagara Falls itself.
