The Grand Teton National Park is such a beautiful place to visit, and I loved reading Kendra's book on the history of the park and all the years it took to be preserved as a National Park.  It has been several years since we visited, but after reading the book I'm ready to go again.  I am grateful that there were people like John D. Rockefeller and the others for seeing that we will all be able to enjoy this beautiful place.  I really enjoyed reading about the people who settled there!  I recommend this book.
