Lassoing the Sun by Mark Woods Book Summary:

"In this remarkable journey, Mark Woods captures the essence of our National Parks: their serenity and majesty, complexity and vitality--and their power to heal." --Ken Burns Many childhood summers, Mark Woods piled into a station wagon with his parents and two sisters and headed to America's national parks. Mark’s most vivid childhood memories are set against a backdrop of mountains, woods, and fireflies in places like Redwood, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon national parks. On the eve of turning fifty and a little burned-out, Mark decided to reconnect with the great outdoors. He'd spend a year visiting the national parks. He planned to take his mother to a park she'd not yet visited and to re-create his childhood trips with his wife and their iPad-generation daughter. But then the unthinkable happened: his mother was diagnosed with cancer, given just months to live. Mark had initially intended to write a book about the future of the national parks, but Lassoing the Sun grew into something more: a book about family, the parks, the legacies we inherit and the ones we leave behind.

Civilizing Nature by Bernhard Gissibl,Sabine Höhler,Patrick Kupper Book Summary:

National parks are one of the most important and successful institutions in global environmentalism. Since their first designation in the United States in the 1860s and 1870s they have become a global phenomenon. The development of these ecological and political systems cannot be understood as a simple reaction to mounting environmental problems, nor can it be explained by the spread of environmental sensibilities. Shifting the focus from the usual emphasis on national parks in the United States, this volume adopts an historical and transnational perspective on the global geography of protected areas and its changes over time. It focuses especially on the actors, networks, mechanisms, arenas, and institutions responsible for the global spread of the national park and the associated utilization and mobilization of asymmetrical relationships of power and knowledge, contributing to scholarly discussions of globalization and the emergence of global environmental institutions and governance.

National Parks of the United States by Charles Howard Richardson Book Summary:

National Parks of the United States examines why visitation will always vary among the national parks just as it did at the time this is covered by this study, the early 1950s. It explores the factors that attract visitors to the National Parks and those that have no bearing on the action of visitors. There is a rank correlation method that reveals the relative degree of attraction among factors that are responsible for the number of visitors flocking to each of the national parks. Because the central problem examined by this study is that of accounting for variations in the numbers of visitors to the various national parks of the United States, the analysis employs some widely accepted hypotheses concerning national park visitation. By reviewing such factors as nearly fishing streams, the availability of campsites, and the populations of towns near each park, this study paints a picture of what attracts visitors to one park over another. The natural beauty of each of these parks also provides the backdrop for the facilities that are made available and thus have a tremendous impact upon visitor attendance and activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, and climbing.

Touring the National Parks of the Midwest by Larry H. Ludmer Book Summary:

Based on the 506-page full guide to the great American national parks, how to avoid the crowds, walking tours, facilities and how to get there, this edition focuses on the major parks of Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota: Badlands, Devil's Tower, Grand Teton, Mt. Rushmore, Scott's Bluff and Yellowstone. It includes information on accommodations and dining, camping and tours. Unlike other guides, this explains in detail how to tour the parks: how much time to allow, how to avoid the crowds, what each place is really like, what you can safely skip and what you must not miss. It offers advice on planning if you have only a few hours, or if you have a few days to explore. Complete directions on getting to and from the parks are included, as well as how to get around once you're there, whether you want to tour independently or prefer to join a group excursion. It also profiles places to stay and eat in and near each park, with options to suit all budgets. Maps show each park's features, along with all surrounding access routes. Are you wondering when to visit? The author tells all about the climate and the crowds (or lack of them) in all seasons and recommends the ideal times to explore our nation's treasures. A unique section, Suggested Trips, contains customized itineraries, describing ways to combine visits to one or more parks with tours of nearby attractions. These routes are designed to last from four to 10 days and include complete directions and recommended places to stay each night. "Describes the parks in depth, giving advice on planning your time - vital when it comes to setting priorities. Invaluable." -- Physician's Travel & Meeting Guide. Maps are shown for every park. The print edition of the full book is 506 pages. "This is a straight-talking author who reminds me of a smart, blunt friend... no pussyfooting around." -- The Armchair Traveler, Daily Herald. "Although it does not include every site administered by the NPS, this book is very thorough in its treatment of the parks it covers. The author also describes 13 suggested driving trips of five to 12 days each, incorporating nearby attractions. Includes detailed information on accommodations/campgrounds, activities available in each park, handy tips and tidbits, maps and photos. A great travel reference book!" -- Amazon customer. "Touring America's national parks has become a passtime for me. I've been from Acadia to the North Cascades to the Grand Canyon and this book is an excellent reference. With an emphasis on travelling via automobile, it also has several suggested hiking trips in each park as well as other points of interest. They say that most people never get more than 100 feet from their cars in parks. Well, this is the book to help get you there, and point out the best routes outside of your car. It covers more territory than anyone could possibly see in a lifetime...but it's sure fun to try." -- Amazon customer

Touring the National Parks of the Northwest by Larry Ludmer Book Summary:

Based on the 506-page full guide to the great American national parks, how to avoid the crowds, walking tours, facilities and how to get there, this edition focuses on the major parks of Washington, Oregon, Montana & Idaho: Crater Lake, Craters of the Moon, Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, North Cascades & Ross Lake, Olympic National Park, and Sawtooth NRA.

It offers advice on planning if you have only a few hours, or if you have a few days to explore. Complete directions on getting to and from the parks are included, as well as how to get around once you're there, whether you want to tour independently or prefer to join a group excursion. It also profiles places to stay and eat in and near each park, with options to suit all budgets. Maps show each park's features, along with all surrounding access routes. Are you wondering when to visit? The author tells all about the climate and the crowds (or lack of them) in all seasons and recommends the ideal times to explore our nation's treasures. A unique section, Suggested Trips, contains customized itineraries, describing ways to combine visits to one or more parks with tours of nearby attractions. These routes are designed to last from four to 10 days and include complete directions and recommended places to stay each night. Describes the parks in depth, giving advice on planning your time - vital when it comes to setting priorities. Invaluable. -- Physician's Travel & Meeting Guide Maps are shown for every park. The print edition of the full book is 506 pages. This is a straight-talking author who reminds me of a smart, blunt friend... no pussyfooting around. -- The Armchair Traveler, Daily Herald Although it does not include every site administered by the NPS, this book is very thorough in its treatment of the parks it covers.
