about

Be inspired by the new edition of Insight Guide US National Parks West, a comprehensive full-color guide to these awe-inspiring wild spaces. Immense glaciers, soaring redwood forests, and desert river canyons are only a sample of what the western US national parks have to offer – and Insight Guides' unrivaled focus on natural and cultural history provides an essential introduction to them. As well as showing you where to enjoy the parks’ most amazing landscapes and wildlife, we cover the history of the national parks movement, the role of park rangers, and their contribution to American life. Our Best Of US National Parks West highlights the top places to see, including the iconic Grand Canyon, the granite peaks and river valley of Yosemite, and geothermal hot springs and geysers of Yellowstone. Descriptive region-by-region accounts of where to go are enhanced by beautiful photographs, while all major sights are cross-referenced with full-color maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of information on how to plan a memorable trip.
