Explore Florida's river-laced Everglades, travel down the white water rapids of the Grand Canyon, trek across the deserts of Death Valley, and scale the soaring summits of the Rocky Mountains with this book that brings you up close to nature's greatest adventures.
Divided by region (East, Central, Rocky Mountains, West, Tropics, and Alaska), a pictographic map at the start of each section shows the locations of the parks to be covered. Each park is introduced by a stunning, poster-worthy illustration of one of its scenes and a summary of its makeup, followed by individual illustrations of the animals and plants that make their homes there.
Captions provide captivating information about the wildlife. Did you know that Everglades National Park is home to marsh rabbits who paddle through its swamps searching for herbs, flowers, and other plants to nibble on? Or that the pronghorn antelope of Badlands National Park are the continent’s fastest land animals, sprinting up to 60 miles per hour to escape predators like bobcats and coyotes?
A “Can you spot this…?” page at the back challenges you to find a pictured critter or plant for every letter of the alphabet.

Cute book!!! Perfect for all ages
This book is such a great addition to my coffee table collection! It is so vibrant and colorful, not to mention very informative! Love love love
Well made and full of useful information that will hopefully peek the interest of nature’s beauty in my grandchild
I'm looking forward to sharing this book with my granddaughter when she's older. She's only 19 months right now so we have a while before I can. Looking through the book makes me smile and brings out the wanderlust in me. I'm ready to get on the road again and can't wait for this pandemic to end so my husband and I can travel again and head to our favorite National Parks. I'm hoping that my granddaughter will join us one day as we explore the parks and can love them as much as we do.
The book is beautiful and really liked working with your business. Thank you for providing an option for people to pay less during these hard times.
