Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Books on national parks are always in demand because of the need to get away from it all. But popular parks such as the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the Great Smokies too often resemble NASCAR racetracks rather than places people visit to escape the crowds and the noise. These two eye-pleasing guides will help readers find some beautiful spots in the United States and Canada that have not yet absorbed the population of Poughkeepsie. Canada is an especially good place to find peace and quiet, since most of its national and provincial parks are quite distant from civilization. In addition to being visually alluring very few of us have ever come back from a vacation with the types of photos that appear in these books both books are replete with useful travel information (when to go, what to see, how to get there). Recommended for armchair and seasoned park travelers alike; public libraries should consider purchasing these as supplements to Freeman Tilden's definitive The National Parks (o.p.) and the glossy guides from the "National Geographic Park Profiles" series.
