A perennial editions, it reflects National Geographic's century—long association with America's national parks system and its peerless reputation for travel expertise and cartographic excellence.

the book opens with an essay by Yellowstone authority Paul Schullery, and an introduction to the guide with a locator map showing all 58 of these American treasures (including the newest, South Carolina's Congree National Park). Next , the parks are presented alphabetically region—by—region, with individual maps and geographical profiles of each. These colorfully illustrated descriptions offer tours tailored to the time available, whether it's an hour or a week, and tell visitors the best spots to enjoy hikes, spectacular vistas, wildlife and more.
