Featured Reviews

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review! 100 Great American Parks by Stephanie Pearson is a coffee-table photobook by National Geographic that includes stunning photos and essays about American parks. Some of the essays included in the excerpt I was sent include "Yosemite National Park," "Cape Cod National Seashore" and "Central Park." According to the synopsis, this book " takes readers to all 63 national parks, as well as 37 state, recreational, and city parks and green spaces." It also includes travel tips and the words of experts for park enthusiasts. Overall, 100 Great American Parks is a photo-book that will appeal to travel enthusiasts and photographers alike. One highlight of this book are the stunning photos of national parks, which include one-page spreads. They are beautiful and worth the price of the book alone. I can see this book being the perfect gift for the nature-lover or travel enthusiast in your life, especially if they've always wanted to see the sights of America. If you're intrigued by the description, or if you're a fan of books about travel, I highly recommend that you check out this book when it comes out in May!
