In the fall of 1994, Death Valley National Park became the fifty-third park to
be added to the U.S. park system. Spanning more than three million acres, Death
Valley is the largest park in the contiguous United States and features a stunningly
diverse array of natural attractions.

The Explorer's Guide to Death Valley National Park is the first
complete guidebook available for this spectacular area. It covers the park's
geologic history and also reviews the human history of the valley, form the
Indians and first western explorers to the prospectors, miners, and present-day

Shrubs, trees, and wildflowers are described along with where and when they
can be found. The habitats and lifestyles of the wildlife, from the rangy coyote
to the tiny springsnail, are shared with the reader.

The Explorer's Guide contains short walks, day hikes, backpacking
trips, and numerous descriptive road logs that lead explorers into the wilderness
backcountry of mines, ghost towns, cactus gardens, incredible scenic vistas,
and desert mysteries.

Written by two acknowledged desert naturalists, explorers, and conservationists, The
Explorer's Guide
is the only book you'll need for an all-encompassing
experience in Death Valley National Park.

  • Pages of Stone : Geology of Western National Parks and Monuments: Grand Canyon and the Plateau Country by Halka Chronic

    Halka Chronic and her daughter Lucy have written a highly readable guide to the Colorado Plateau's national parks and monuments. The book begins with an introduction to the formation and geology of the Colorado Plateau that is understandable to even the most amateur geologist. Then the authors dive into the specifics of each national park and monument. The book's black-and-white photographs are attractive and illustrative as are the few color ones in the center of the book. It's obvious the book was written by authors who love the land of which they write.
