Publisher Comments:

Straightforward and easy to use, here are firsthand, field-tested recommendations on what to see and how to organize and embark on a national park trip. Acclaimed National Geographic writers introduce readers to all 57 national parks — including the new Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. They have extensively toured each park and produced dozens of tours tailored to suit the needs of even the most ambitious sightseers. Widely recognized as the definitive guide to our nation's most cherished natural oases, this new edition provides in-depth insights and up-to-the-minute information, covering everything from major landmarks and wildlife to lesser-known attractions, accommodations, and suggested excursions.

In addition to 415 full-color photographs and 80 up-to-date color maps, this refreshing one-stop guide features the following:
-- Detailed descriptions of each national park
-- Site-by-site author-guided tours full of specific, personal recommendations
-- Accessible "Information and Activities" pages and an essay by the renowned Yellowstone naturalist and writer Paul Schullery
-- Excursions to hundreds of nearby sites, including national monuments, wildlife refuges, and forests

Durable, portable, and comprehensive, this is the book readers will turn to for a trustworthy guide to America's national parks.
