Discover diverse and breathtaking natural landscapes in this beautifully illustrated collection of America’s 63 national parks, as well as 37 state, recreational, and city parks and green spaces.
Nowhere in the world is there a park system like America’s. The National Park System was the first in the world and is a collection of the country’s best national treasures. For Americans, these places are part of our cultural DNA. Filled with beautiful National Geographic photography, wisdom from experts, need-to-know travel information including the best scenic overlooks and hiking trails, and practical wildlife-spotting tips, this inspirational collection takes readers to all 63 national parks, as well as 37 state, recreational, and city parks and green spaces.

*The mountain peaks of the Tetons

*The crystal-clad underworld of Carlsbad Caverns
*The steamy swamps and mangrove forests of the deep South
*Hidden gems tucked in bustling cities like New York’s Central Park
And so much more!

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!
