Abstract:

Combines photos with brief essays to capture America's national parks and their features, including Delicate Arch, Old Faithful, Half Dome, and El Capitan. Award-winning photographer David Muench captures the well-visited park icons that millions of Americans love and cherish as well as the lesser-known and seldom seen wilderness areas of the park, the untouched gems where few traveler's venture. Ruth Rudner's moving essay coupled with Muench's visual celebration of these great lands, brings to life everything from the Great Smokies to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, to Bryce Canyon and hundreds of other unique images.
