Having been to some of the well known National Parks in America we decided we enjoyed the experience so much we would venture into new territory and see other parks that were less well known.
This book is a good starting point for planning, as it does cover all the smaller parks and gives you a lot of basic information about them. It helps quickly eliminate some from your thoughts, and gives you enough encouragement to investigate others.
The only downside to a compact book (about an inch thick) is that it can't possibly include all the information you would require and therefore it leaves you needing a more detailed book when it comes to planning the actual trip.
A great ideas book, that would be less useful on the actual trip.
With an average coverage of less than nine pages per Park, this guide cannot hope to provide a substitute for more detailed specific guides, particularly for visitors who intend to go off the beaten track. Where it does excel is by providing a concise and enjoyable overview of the Parks, and a starting point for further reading.
Of course, being National Geographic the photos are lovely and the quality second to none.
