              From the cascading waterfalls of Yosemite to the unique geothermal features of Yellowstone, the U.S. national parks are among the most breathtaking destinations in the world. Founded to preserve the nation's heritage and historic landscapes for posterity, the national parks repre...sent one of America's crowning achievements and internationally significant treasures. The National Parks: An American Legacy tells the story of the parks through the photography of Ian Shive, today's leading photographer of our national parks and their surrounding significant landscapes, as well as through poignant essays by conservancy groups from across the country. With more than 200 glorious images of the nation's parks, this book celebrates everything from the snowy vistas of Denali in Alaska to the lava flows in Hawaii's Volcano National Park-as well as Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and hundreds more, from sea to shining sea. Comprehensive, stunningly beautiful, and always inspiring, The National Parks: An American Legacy reveals the way humankind interacts with the parks, and how the story of the national parks is also a tribute to the people who visit, explore, and tirelessly work to preserve these cherished American landscapes.

              Explore the gorgeous landscapes and unique flora and fauna of some of America's last and most pristine wilderness locations, the National Wildlife Refuges. Though far more obscure than the famous American National Parks system, the National Wildlife Refuges have an importance and... a majesty all their own. First established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge system has since grown to encompass more than 560 refuges, all dedicated to the preservation of America's wilderness and the protection of its native plants and animals. With development and human habitation spreading ever wider, these refuges provide over 150 million acres of sanctuary for thousands of species, many of them endangered. The National Wildlife Refuges are stunning, all the more so for the density and uniqueness of the life they protect. But unlike the National Parks, few people will ever visit a National Wildlife Refuge--in large part because many of them are remote, in landscapes that have remained untouched thanks to precisely how inhospitable they are to humanity. Let this book show you the beauty and wonder of these important wildlife havens, from the rugged mountains of Alaska to the muggy swamps of Florida, from the islands of the Oregon Coast to salt marshes and trails of east Texas.
