About the Author:

Lary M. Dilsaver is professor of geography at the University of South Alabama and coeditor with Craig E. Colten of The American Environment: Interpretations of Past Geographies (Rowman & Littlefield, 1993).

Review:

An invaluable reference. . . . Dilsaver's book takes the legislation that created the parks and related documents and presents this material to the reader in an easily accessible and understandable format. The book is not only an important contribution to understanding the history of our national parks, but is the most important published source available today that uses primary sources to explain how and why our national park system came into being and evolved into the magnificent system it is today. (Harry Butowsky)

An important addition to the library of any environmental historian. (Environmental History Review)

An indispensable reference. (Edwin C. Bearss)

Future park scholarship will be clearer and easier with these invaluable documents together. We owe him our thanks. (Terence Young)

Professor Dilsaver's compilation and commentary will be of great value both to those directly responsible for our national parks and to others interested in how our park management policies and practices have evolved. The National Park Service and its supporters are deeply in his debt. (Mackintosh, Barry)

The work has great value as a reference at all levels and for a range of programs in policy and resource issues. (Choice)

The documents compiled by Dilsaver reveal the basic structure of national park history. They are essential to understanding the changing nature of the National Park Service's management of the parks. (Richard West Sellars)

A comprehensive collection of the important documents pertaining to the National Park System. . . . This is the best such compilation of National Park legislation available. (Journal Of The West)
