"Your Guide to the National Parks: The complete Guide to All 58 National Parks is quite frankly, amazing." On Wisconsin Magazine
"In short, this is a great, almost encyclopedic, guide to help you prepare for your park visits." ─ Kurt Repanshek (nationalparkstraveler.com)

"Each entry includes location info, what to expect from nature, how to find the park, open seasons, notable attractions, and plenty of full color photography to back the details up. "Your Guide to the National Parks" is a must for nature and vacation collections." ─ Midwest Book Review

"This gem of a travel guide is one of the most comprehensive and well-crafted books of its genre on the market." ─ ForeWord Reviews

"Given the increased interest in national parks since Ken Burns's related PBS series and the upcoming National Park Service centennial in 2016, this is a timely and useful reference. Its bulk, and even its print size, make it a book to use at home or in the library to plan a vacation..." ─ Library Journal
