"It’s in author Becky Lomax’s DNA to have written such a comprehensive book about our country’s national parks. In 1902, her great-grandparents visited Yellowstone on their honeymoon (riding a carriage!) and her father was a National Park Ranger in Washington state. Consequently, Lomax grew up exploring and becoming an expert in her natural backyard habitat. As a nationally published magazine writer, Lomax has gone one step further in compiling this comprehensive guidebook for adventurers and armchair readers alike…Each park is detailed in great depth including visitors’ centers, best places to take photos, history of the park, wildlife species, activities, camping, full-color maps and really, too much to outline here. Let’s just say Lomax deserves my vote for an “Outdoors Pulitzer” for this comprehensive guidebook on our national parks."—Carolyn Price, OutdoorsNW
