it was amazing

This is an incredibly beautiful book. Anyone who loves to quilt or loves visiting our National Parks would get a lot of enjoyment from this book. It is a compilation of photos of actual quilts that were inspired by our 59 National Parks. The quilts depict scenes from the park or wildlife native to that park. The National Parks are listed from A - Z.

Along with the quilts are stories from the park rangers who work in that particular park. The vignettes are personal accounting's of the ranger's feelings and joy that they have from their job, and the beauty that surrounds them.

I can not even imagine the time it took to create the quilts, interview the Rangers and put it all together. I personally have been to many of the National Parks. Reading the stories and seeing the visions that the quilts are, brought me a lot of joy.

I received this arc from Netgalley for an honest review.
