Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring)
This series provides an in-depth look at the history, development, and biological and geological formation of America's national parks. The information is well organized and presented in erudite text. Maps and large, gorgeous photographs of landscapes and wildlife appear prominently in otherwise understated layouts. An appendix in each volume provides further information on animals and planning a visit. Websites. Bib., glos., ind. [Review covers these Preserving America titles: Badlands National Park, Big Bend National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park.]
