Gripping stories about tragedies that have taken place in various National Park Service units throughout the United States. Although some stories are just enough to whet the reader's appetite for more information, most are interesting, intriguing, gut wrenching true accounts of plane crashes, accidents, murders, and more, all garnered from National Park Service files. The story that I wanted more of, however, was the story of the little boy lost in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the 1970s. There definitely are some gut-wrenching stories, but good, nonetheless.
