Each book in this series tells a compelling story through the eyes of an experienced interpreter whose writing reflects true enthusiasm for the park. Complete with running text and interpretive captions, accompanied by abundant full-color photographs, these books will be welcome in any home library.

About the Author

Bill Clark is a retired park ranger. A graduate in geology from Tufts University, Bill served several years in Death Valley. He wrote the original Death Valley: The Story Behind the Scenery in 1972 and has updated it several times. He tells the story of this often maligned desert, revealing in intimate detail its true essence--its subtle beauties, spectacular forms, and surprising variety.

I studied this book extensively prior to a trip to Death Valley in March of this year. If you wish to see the key sites, and observe how they were photographed, this book will do it for you. Its definitely worth studying prior to your visit if you wish to get the most out of it.

Excellent, if a bit dated photos, and a good overview of the park itself. These guides always make great souvenirs.
