Overview

The official companion book to the popular PBS television series, Great Lodges, and the second volume in Christine Barnes's popular series, Great Lodges of the National Parks, Volume Two, will leave a lasting impression on any reader. Blending stunning nature, unique buildings, and fascinating stories, Great Lodges will transport you to another place through beautiful photography and writing. From the Grand Lake Hotel in Yellowstone National Park, to the classic Lake Quinault Lodge in Olympic National Park, to the visionary Volcano House in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, this stunningly illustrated and meticulously researched volume offers new insights into these historic landmarks. The selected lodges represent an eclectic collection of architecture that reflects America's social changes: from neo-classical grand resorts and Spanish revival villas to traditional lake lodges and log cabins in the mountains. Stunning photography by Fred Pflughoft and David Morris compliment Barnes's research and writing, while historical black-and-white photographs give readers a new appreciation for the historical landmarks and vistas that compliment our national parks.

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). (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
