Wide, breathtaking landscapes; crystal-clear, blue lakes; high, snow-covered mountain peaks—but also wild grizzlies, buffalos, mustangs, and rare animal species: this is North America. With nearly sixty national parks, the United States is preserving a living monument to the continent's pristine nature in an effort to make it accessible to everyone. This volume presents twenty-six parks in more than 450 photographs. Each has its own character and individual charm.
