Overview

Fifty of America's most scenic national parks are featured in this oversize volume filled with spectacular images by some of America's best contemporary landscape photographers. The ageless monumental scenery of America, especially in the West, became the basis for its national identity in the period following the Civil War.

Prior to the creation of the National Park Service in 1916, publicizing the national treasures of the American landscape fell primarily to the railroads, which had a vested interest in creating destinations for the public.

Individual entries on each featured park provide a context for nearly 200 full-color photographs that will enthrall armchair travelers and entice others to lace up their hiking boots and reach for sporting gear. This beautiful volume will encourage readers to experience these national treasures with a greater awareness o f their history and unique qualities.

    Fabulous Photographs

    I was looking for a present for my husband and found it in this book! I wanted a large coffe table book with photographs of parks that we could visit someday along with short synapses of those parks. Perfect! Makes for great daydreaming. More photos and less writing than similar books--just what I was looking for. And my husband loves his present.
