About this book

This handy, practical, comprehensive guidebook to the 57 scenic national parks, including new Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, helps organize a parks visit with detailed background and planning information and then directs visitors to the best sights once they arrive. National Geographic writers have extensively covered each park and offer specific, in-depth recommendations, along with timed tours, that help visitors make the most of their time. More than 80 detailed, easy-to-use maps guide readers to and around each park, and more than 460 vivid, full-color photos show off the parks and provide a valued keepsake. The book is organized by region, with each region introduced by a map and a geographical profile, followed by the parks in alphabetical order. An Information & Activities page for each park gives all the practical information and recommends campgrounds and lodgings. Suggested excursions to other area nature sites ends each the park chapter.

Wide ranging and meticulous...the photographs are excellent, and the plentiful maps...further add to the guide's worth. -- "Library Journal", Starred review
