National Park Books
Our public lands are our national treasure, our greatest idea. The search for beautiful natural places has taken me across our country, and I've visited many of our national parks along the way. My love of these public lands we share landed me in West Yellowstone, Montana where I spent many years working in Yellowstone National Park, a truly magical place.
Starting a family brought my partner and I back to Michigan where grandparents reside, but one thing we made sure of when deciding where to land was that we would have access to public lands and beautiful natural spaces, which brought us here to northern Michigan in proximity of Sleeping Beard Dunes National Lakeshore.
Between the dunes and trails, nature conservancies, and national forests, there are endless opportunities here to get out and enjoy the beauty of northern Michigan.
From a historical look at the founding of our parks to books for young readers, here's a collection of books dedicated to our national lands.
