Rediscovering National Parks in the Spirit of John Muir (Paperback)Michael Frome (author)
- We can order this
In recollections of his encounters and conversations with key people in national park history, Frome discusses park politics, conflicts between use and preservation, and impacts of commercialization. He proposes a dedicated return to the true spirit in which the parks were established, in the manner of John Muir. He advocates maintaining these lands as wild sanctuaries, places where we can find inspiration, solitude, silence, balance, and simplicity, reminding us why we must preserve our national treasures and why we need to connect with the deeper values they hold.

"Very engaging. Frome is a significant figure in modern park and environmental history, having been preeminent as a journalist in the field for many, many years. What he thinks on these matters is worth pondering."--Joseph L. Sax, author of Mountains without Handrails: Reflections on the National Parks
