An inspired tribute to the astonishing beauty and priceless cultural treasures of America’s National Parks, this volume is a lavish celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. National Geographic The National Parks collects the very best of National Geographic’s photographs, combined with an expertly told history: from the multi-hued layers of the Grand Canyon to the verdigris flame of the Statue of Liberty, this book presents a breathtaking panorama of the National Parks.
With the stories behind the first female park ranger, a decidedly amateur scuba expedition that unearthed a submerged Civil War treasure trove, and so much more, Heacox takes readers on a VIP tour of America’s rich natural and cultural heritage. The full sweep of wonders—from pristine coral reefs to the Gettysburg battlefield to glaciers and all the glorious diversity in between—offers a breathtaking tour of the very best of America’s national treasures.
