Let's take a peek inside this book and look at some of the amazing information it has on our Parks.
This book covers most of the major National Parks in the United States. Here is the Table of Contents so you can see exactly which parks are highlighted.
The book provides a brief history of the National Parks from their inception in 1864 when President Lincoln first protected Yosemite in California all the way into today where the National Park Service is in charge of more than 400 parks across the United States.
The books begins with the first National Park: Yosemite. I live in California and have been fortunate to visit this park twice. It has amazing waterfalls and scenic views and challenging hiking. My first time there, I stayed in a cabin in the park and used the bear safe food containers shown in the book. You don't want to be leaving food around or you will attract the wrong kind of visitor to your cabin. These pictures give you a glimpse of what Yosemite has to offer it's visitors.
