This may appear to be just a coffee table book but it s much than that This is a comprehensive history of our national parks from the first molecule of an idea right up to the present I learned about many of the key figures here and there in my university degree program This book pulled it all together for me chronologically so I could appreciate each person s sacrifices and contributions within the context of the emerging national park system I ve been a user and a lover of our national parks since early childhood I ve visited nearly all of the parks and monuments in the Western US and worked a few summers in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons So I m going to get sappy and mushy here fair warning and say that my heart really did swell with gratitude as I read about the tireless determination of these men and women Amid great opposition they worked to set aside our national treasures You ve heard the names John Muir Stephen Mather Horace Albright Teddy Roosevelt FDR John D Rockefeller Jr Laurence Rockefeller Olaus Adolph and Mardy Murie and too many others too mention Mather and the Rockefellers spent millions of their own dollars buying up property to donate anticipating national park status for those lands What a legacy The history also includes some of the colorful characters who studied visited or tried to scam a profit from the national parks These stories are sometimes entertaining sometimes sad and sometimes just plain hard to fathom with our 21st Century mentalityOf course the book is full of stunning scenic photos and artwork as well as a wealth of historical photos I m very passionate about what s left of our wild lands so I ll be revisiting this book in the future The book springs from a PBS special for which there is a set of six DVDs If you re too lazy to read the book view the program and absorb some important history

Free download The National Parks America's Best Idea Review ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Dayton Duncan Dayton Duncan × 2 Characters The valley that would become Yosemite and the creation of the world’s first national park at Yellowstone in 1872 through the most recent additions to a system that now encompasses nearly four hundred sites and 84 million acresThe authors recount the adventures mythmaking and intense political battles behind the evolution of the park system and the enduring ideals that fostered its growth They capture the importance and splendors of the individual parks from Haleakala in Hawaii to Acadia in Maine. What a wonderful addition to my national parks education I read this via audio which always challenges me to keep the story straight As Dayton Duncan said at the end of the book this is a story about the individuals who and ideas that helped form our national parks Many if not most times movies result as adaptations of a book Interestingly in this case the book was a result of the Ken Burns The National Parks America s Best Idea I have saved watching the video series until I d read the book so now on to viewingJohn Muir was a prominent figure throughout the book and rightly so A succinct but good account of Muir is given early on and has impressed me to learn about him Somewhere in the last part of the book the term Muir Moments was used and all those Muir Moments thereafter were special I get a special little thrill when a book I m reading surprisingly mentions a person I ve recently met in my reading life Such was the case here The man Adolf Murie was foremost in a chapter and I wondered with a hopeful expectation that he was somehow related to Olaus and Mardy Murie of whom I had read about last year in her book Two in the Far North Not only that but on a recent trip to the Grand Tetons I saw on a park map an area marked as Murie Ranch To me since Murie is not a common last name I wondered Olaus and Mardy were crossing my path again When I got to the visitor center I asked one of the park rangers about the Murie Ranch Sure enough it was the home of Olaus and Mardy for over thirty years after their time in Alaska and a place where Adolf visited often That thrilled me Also in this book Olaus simple response to a graduate student intern asking how he could help to which Olaus replied Wear out a pair of hiking boots That I think is how we can help perpetuate our national parks Almost at the end of the book Dayton Duncan recounts his story of how a particular visit to a national park affected him as a youngster and then how that same visit affected his Duncan s son It was beautiful and would bring a bit of touching tears to the eyes This book has helped forge my own desire to travel and explore America s protected natural areas while I still am able I particularly enjoyed the audio edition
