America's Outdoor Guides
From the celebrated national parks to the lesser-known state parks and wildlife refuges, this landmark series encourages readers to experience a region firsthand, providing detailed descriptions and information about the landscapes, flora, and fauna. Acclaimed nature writers Mel White (a veteran travel scribe) and Gary Ferguson (author of The Sylvan Path) contribute enticing narratives and insights into physiography, natural history, and plant life.

Each book includes author-guided hikes leading readers along favorite trails, pointing out and explaining natural highlights; detailed site descriptions plus opportunities for camping, cycling, fishing, and much more; vignettes on geology, plants, and animals; and extensive resource listings.
