National Parks of America

Whether it is the awesome scale of the Grand Canyon or the frigid waters of Isle Royale, the subtropic splendor of the Everglades or the bursts of color on the alpine meadows of Glacier National Park, these wonders are some of America's most precious national resources. In NATIONAL PARKS OF AMERICA, the parks are presented in a way that showcases their beauty as never before, including such parks as Hawaii Volcanoes and the Great Smokies along with Big Bend, the Redwoods, Yellowstone, and Bryce Canyon, David Muench's name has been synonomous with great landscape photography for many years.

The national parks of America have been the crown jewels of our nations landscape. Muench has created and organized a park-by-park tour of these magnificent places. The images are inspiring and often surprise the viewer as familiar scenes are suddenly revealed in new ways. The layout keeps the reader advised as one moves from one park to another without intruding into the flow of images themselves.
