Death Valley National Parkby Nate Frisch
The United States is defined in part by its majestic wild places, and the preservation of these landscapes ensures that it will always be so. The geysers of Yellowstone, waterfalls of Yosemite, and natural wonders of four other great American national parks are beautifully captured in Preserving America. Surveying the full history and development of each park, and featuring notes offering tips and itineraries for visitors, these gorgeously illustrated titles transport readers to the most magnificent wilderness areas America has to offer.
Gr 4–7—This series delivers the next best thing to traveling to the national parks in person. Informative and visually stunning, each title provides a level of access report writers will appreciate. Features covered include each park's history, geography, animal life, recreational activities, and conservation efforts. The writing is direct and illustrative: "Yosemite is characterized by sky-piercing mountain peaks and plunging waterfalls." Illustrations consist of archival and present-day photos, drawings, and maps. The many color photographs are of exceptionally fine quality, giving the images an almost stereoscopic quality. First-rate all around.
