America's National Parks combines gorgeous photographic spreads with fascinating information about the geology of each park, describing the geothermal and volcanic pressures, wind and water erosion, and glacial carving that have worked together over the years to create the famous landscapes of the parks. Six eight-page gatefolds open out to illustrate topics such as erosion in further detail. Immersing readers in the history, wildlife, and geology of America's national treasures, this beautiful book is a perfect introduction to the natural wonders of our country.
