      Comments about Guide to the State Parks of the United States, 3rd edition:

      I ordered this book because we are avid users of the Connecticut state parks and want to explore more in our own state and New England. The very few parks mentioned for each state seem to have been chosen at random, and the books ignores many wonderful parks. It is a pretty useless reference. NG would have served us much better with regional editions that were detailed and include all the parks.
