4.0 out of 5 stars Captures the turn of the century beauty of the Parks January 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interesting read !!!!! Describes in the words of Mark Twain and others the National Parks beauty around 1919. What I enjoyed was the history of each National Park.: who explored and documented their mystic wonder and the Indian accounts in the old west.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great historic book on the National Parks April 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Book of the National Parks is a wonderful historical book on the National Parks. It was written around 1919, so none of the newer parks are represented. This does not diminish the value of the book. The history of the older parks, such as Yellowstone, Glacier, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, the volcanic parks, Mt. Rainer, Crater Lake and many others are very interesting. This is a valuable piece of our heritage and the author did a wonderful job with this book. I highly recommend it for the historical value as well as the subject matter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Essay But Lacking February 8, 2014
By R.H.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It simply had a lack of history and individual charm about each park. Maybe I expected more, but it doesn't deliver like you'd think.

This is a good reference book for current and future use. My husband and I enjoy visiting National Parks in the United States. Glad it also was free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the National Parks March 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Plan to keep this in my Kindle as a reference. I am already planning vacation spots based on the information given. Not so technical that is loses my interest, but enough facts for my use as a non-expert. Contains lists of places to visit, make me anxious to get going on my next trip.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well pleased October 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All items purchased met or exceeded my expectations. I especially liked the books. " Summer of Light" was very thought provoking and humorous at the same time. " An Invisible Thread" shows the impact of acts of kindness.
