Good overview of the coming of age of the NPS but I found the rambling style of writing to be distracting. The reproduction of the camper survey at the end of the book was very interesting--wonder how much things have changed if the survey were repeated now.

Interesting biography of a senior NPS official's life and career. This book covers a big foot print in time and lots of different national parks and areas.
