Summary
"The book showcases the parks? hidden gems and little-known experiences, and provides a wealth of information designed to help visitors get the most out of exploring the national parks. Visited by nearly 280 million people in 2011, the parks are among the most popular destinations in the country. The editors of National Geographic Books asked 10 well-known nature writers with intimate knowledge of 32 of the most-visited parks to share tips about spots off the well-beaten tourist tracks that are often overlooked but which can make a trip to a national park extra special, exciting and memorable."--Publisher's website
