5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking photography! 19 Jan. 2008
By M. Hansen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had this gem under the Christmas tree for my husband. It is such a beautiful book that we keep looking at it together, remembering the beautiful National Parks that we have been to and the ones we plan on visiting in the future. All the photograghs are beautifully shot, and the information provided is enjoyable to read. The best National Park book I have ever seen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book 22 July 2011
By C. Clark - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a national park lover, this is now one of my favorite books. It combines breathtaking photography with relevant information. Obvious, no book can have every detail of every park, but this one hits the highlights very well. I like the fact that it doesn't feel obligated to give each park a certain number of pages. Some parks, with more things to see and do, and treated accordingly and have more pages dedicated to them. Overall, just a great book with a near perfect balance of information and photography.

This book is amazing. It is very well written and well organized. This book gives us what we really want: beautiful pictures. Many take up the entire page. The information is very well presented - quite interesting. This is a great resource as well as a great coffee table book.

I purchased this book for my brother to encourage him for a trip to the US. Before giving it to him we spent a nice time reminding our own trip in the Rockies and South-West parks. We are definitly going to the States again to see more!
