Description
 
Linda Flint McClelland. Since its founding in 1916, the National Park Service has been charged with two equally important & often conflicting missions: to preserve our countryís natural wonders for future generations & to develop national parks for the appreciation & enjoyment of visitors. Recalling the era of the great lodges at Yellowstone & Yosemite, this volume tells the story of how the new bureauís landscape designers, architects, & engineers met each of these challenges, forging a rich legacy of buildings, roads, & trails that both harmonized with the natural scenery & accommodated visitors to the parks. Their achievements -- detailed for the first time here -- have greatly influenced the design of state & local parks & other recreational areas across the U.S. B&W photos.
