Smart, short, and irresistibly illustrated, This Is a Book for People Who Love National Parks is a park-by-park celebration of the American outdoors.
For devoted park-goers and casual campers alike, this charming guide is nothing short of a celebration of America's natural wonders.
An introduction to the storied history of the Parks Service is paired with engaging profiles of each of the sixty-one National Parks, from Acadia to Zion and everything in between.
Quirky facts and key dates are woven throughout, while refreshingly modern illustrations capture the iconic features of each majestic setting.
Deeply researched but not too serious, This Is a Book for People Who Love National Parks is an essential addition to every park lover's field library.

For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.
COVID-19 Update: Our warehouse is adopting safe social distance practices and taking all necessary measures to ship orders with the highest safety standards. These measures may result in longer fulfillment times than normal so we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.Our standard policy is still detailed below for your reference.
We know what it's like to order something online and want to have it in your hands as quickly as possible. We ask that you allow us 1 business day to process your order and get it ready to ship, however we do everything we can to get orders out the door as soon as they come in - which means most packages ship the very same day you order.
Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our mail pickup will be shipped the next business day whenever possible.
We offer the ability to pre-order and back order some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.
Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory. Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!
We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing separate orders so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.
If you choose an option like "Express (2 Business Days)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly two days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).
Please see our separate Carrier Info page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.
When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.
PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!
If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!
I have been talking about a National Park Quest for a long time....this book got me off my duff...it gives the important basics for each park, focuses on a few highlights that you may not get elsewhere and ,well, inspires you to get out there...I bought it for my girl friend but once I laid eyes on it I kept. She'll still get the benefits and she can read while I drive...
I gave it to my son and he LOVES it!
This book is great! All the National Parks and its small like a guidebook! Trek Light Gear has the best customer service as well!
Will definitely be ordering more from them!!
This book is so cool it made me make a vow to visit ALL national parks one day as a life goal:)
