These two valuable guides to popular recreational areas both deserve a place in any public library. Oregon State Parks considers often overlooked attractions of this remarkable state, best known for its Crater Lake National Park. Bannan covers 110 of these scenic jewels, giving potential visitors all the information they will need to make the most out of what is bound to be a memorable vacation. Her personal involvement with her subject is evident in her lyrical descriptions of the sights and accommodations. More utilitarian, but still displaying a dash of humor, is Spring's guide to Montana's Glacier National Park and its Canadian counterpart--Waterton Lakes. This was the first park to cross the U.S.-Canadian border, yet there remains enough of a difference in administration and tourist amenities to maintain distinctive cultural boundaries. Spring presents an exhaustive look at the backpacking opportunities available in each park. She does describes the creature comforts offered by the parks but makes it clear that these are parks to be savored more in the crisp air of the outdoors than the tourist hotel. These are two outstanding additions to any collection.
