Product Description

The National Parks: An American Legacy tells the story of the parks through the photography of Ian Shive, today’s leading photographer of our national parks and their surrounding significant landscapes, as well as through poignant essays by conservancy groups from across the country.

With more than 200 glorious images of the nation’s parks, this book celebrates everything from the snowy vistas of Denali in Alaska to the lava flows in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park—as well as Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and dozens more, from sea to shining sea. Comprehensive, stunningly beautiful, and always inspiring, The National Parks: An American Legacy reveals the way humankind interacts with the parks, and how the story of the national parks is also a tribute to the people who visit, explore, and tirelessly work to preserve these cherished landscapes.
