The National Parks Book (Audio Book)
THE NATIONAL PARKS is the story of an idea as uniquely American as the Declaration of Independence: that the most special places in the nation should be preserved for everyone. The series traces the birth of the national park idea in the mid-1800s and follows its evolution for nearly 150 years, chronicling the addition of new parks through the stories of the people who helped create them.The authors recount the adventures, myth-making, and intense political battles behind the evolution of the park system, and the enduring ideals that cultivated its growth. They capture the importance and splendors of the individual parks: from Haleakala in Hawaii to Acadia in Maine, from Denali in Alaska to the Everglades in Florida, from Glacier in Montana to Big Bend in Texas. And they introduce us to a diverse group of people-both unsung heroes and famous figures such as John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ansel Adams- all of whom have been transformed and influenced by these special places and committed themselves to saving the natural wonder of these places from destruction so that the rest of us could be transformed as well.This book accompanies Ken Burns The National Parks: America's Best Idea documentary.
