Atlas of the National Parks combines park maps with encyclopedia-like knowledge. National Geographic and the National Parks were partners before National Parks were even a thing! President Teddy Roosevelt created the United States Forest Service in 1905.

It isn't possible to get through this book without belting "This Land is Your Land", I don't care who you are. Absolutely amazing photos, but just an incredible amount of information that is so well organized. If you are planning a road trip, this is the first resource you need to grab.
