|The Book||The Other Side of the Argument||Activities|
Look closely at Porter's images. Select the one that best describes Glen Canyon and describe how you feel about it.
Porter combined his images into a sequence and paired them with text to create The Place No One Knew. What do the images of Glen Canyon shown on this Web site tell you about the canyon that just one photograph does not? How do the words affect your thoughts about the images? About Glen Canyon as a whole?
Now think of your own special place. How would you feel if it were flooded? What would you lose? What would you gain if a beautiful lake was the result?
Defending the Environment:
What would you do to protect your special place? Who would you need to convince to preserve this place?
