Summary:
Not a guidebook, but a visual tour of the 61 U.S. National Parks. Yellowstone became our first National Park, in 1864, but some of the parks predate that; the National Park System (NPS) was created in 1916. Their names evoke grandeur and pride, and are on most people's bucket list of places to see. But though the parks are protected, they still face threats from erosion and climate change to drilling and development. In addition to the parks, this pictorial guide covers historic landmarks and other must-see wonders. -- adapted from back cover, front flap, and page 6 of book.
