Editorial Reviews

"A Family Guide to the Grand Circle National Parks is a fun, easy read and excellent guide for anyone wanting to tour the Southwest USA, good guide book with or without an RV." - Rich P. "Loved it! We were planning a trip to three of the parks, but after picking up A Family Guide.. we added on two others. Really helpful information and definitely helped us plan out a better vacation.. and the stories were a welcome plus! I want to do this trip again!" - Tanya and Trevor L. "What a fresh approach to travel guides, I actually read it cover to cover!" - Ernest D. "I absolutely love it!!! The pictures are beautiful and to be honest, what he wrote actually made me cry at one point. We all get so caught up with TV, Facebook, gadgets, etc that we forget to live our lives and enjoy what God has truly given us. It makes me want to change my life completely." - Heather S.
