Quick thoughts on the book:
On August 25, 2016, the National Park Service celebrated it's 100th Anniversary. I wish I had found this book in time to post it for the August celebration. However, since the National Park Service is celebrating all year long, we can celebrate another book. To check out my previous posts, click here: Park Scientists | Mountain Chef
