It has 192 pages--loaded with lovely glossy pictures.
Not all of these lodges, however, are located in the national parks.Timberline Lodge is in a national forest and Oregon Caves Chateau is located at a national monument.
The pictures in this book are breathtaking. Historical pictures as well as present day pictures are located in the book.
This book is VERY similar to the Great Lodges of the West book (also by Christine Barnes). Some of the EXACT same pictures that are in the Great Lodges of the West book are in this book!
But this book adds more pictures.
This one has more pages (as compared to 136 pages) and this one has more pictures. Also covered in this one is Belton Chalet and Sperry & Granite Park Chalets (which the other book doesn't cover in full detail).Read more ›
But this book is 1/3 about the national parks, 1/3 about the history of the lodges, and 1/3 about the lodges today. If that is what you are looking for, then you will probably be happy with this book.
If, on the other hand, you want a book packed with lots of present day pictures of the lodges, you might be a little disappointed.
I already have books about the national parks and the scenery, so I wasn't looking for more of that. And I don't really care about who did what at the lodges back in 1940 or 1950 or whenever. I just wanted lots of pictures of how these beautiful buildings look today. There are a few nice color pictures of each lodge but not as many pictures of the lodges in their present state as you would think a nearly 200 page book would have.
