Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With their enormous halls, hickory furniture, Indian print textiles and mounted stags' heads, the majestic old inns and hotels of U.S. national parks almost rival the landscape for attention. Old Faithful Inn, Crater Lake Lodge, El Tovar and the Oregon Caves Chateau are just a few of the marvels of the West found in Great Lodges of the National Parks: An Illustrated History. Author Christine Barnes (Great Lodges of the West), a consultant and historian for the PBS series to which this book is a companion, offers an engaging history of each lodge and its environs with photos by nature photographer Fred Pflughoft, whose work appears in national magazines and calendars, and indoor and nature photographer David Morris (Great Lodges of the West).

    Another great book about great lodges

    I saw Great Lodges of the National Parks featured in the March 2009 issue of "O" magazine as Sarah Vowell's "Books That Made a Difference". Volume Two (published 2008) is really the third or fourth "coffee table" book written by Christine Barnes on what must be her favorite subject---the historic lodges of the national parks. Lucky for us someone has taken the time to not only research the history and architecture of these landmark buildings, but has photographers who capture the beauty of these special places. And the historic black and white photos and drawings add to the package. A beautiful book about beautiful places. The president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation wrote the foreword...that gave me a clue that this isn't your ordinary pretty book.
