In addition to being environmentally kind, they're just plain good ol' reads for the globe-bound traveler. And as of last month, they're updated with the complete scoop on National Parks thanks to a relaunch of the park series, which kicks off with four North American faves: Yosimite, Sequoia & King's Canyon National Parks, Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, Grand Canyon National Park, and Banff, Jasper and Glacier National Parks.
In each guide, you'll find:
- History and Environment chapters give visitors vital background information on the parks’ past and present
- Sustainable options and green travel ideas throughout
- A “Support Your National Park” feature gives information on how to give back to the parks and promotes sustainability and volunteering
- Over 40 hikes
