On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the act creating the National Park Service. This amazing government agency preserves America's finest treasures, beginning with Yellowstone National Park established in 1872. The stories of the nation's growth and ideals are told at historic buildings, important landmarks, battlefield sites, and inspirational memorials. Learn the story from three men who lived it for 75 years. Pictures of 119 park areas -- from national parks, seashores, and rivers to national historic parks and scenic trails -- reflect the wide diversity of the system.
Each book in The Story Behind the Scenery 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.
96 pp., over 160 color photos, map.
