America's National Parks are chapters in America's Legacy. Over the last 100 years, our incredibly diverse national park system has evolved in ways that reflect our culture, our values, and what we wish to preserve. Reflecting back, it's hard to imagine that in 1914 when Horace Albright first met Stephen Mather in Washington DC, America's National Parks were just an idea - one that they would soon bring to life. In this book, three men - Horace Albright, Russ Dickenson and William Penn Mott, Jr. - all former National Park Service directors - tell about the growth and ideals of our national parks system from its beginning to the present in pictures, captions and text. It was a story they lived for 75 years. At age 97, Horace Albright, personally dictated and reviewed this text shortly before passing away in 1987. 96 Pages
