Description

This guide describes landmark structures associated with national parks in Oregon, Washington, and California. It discusses their historical and architectural significance, with attention to form, function, and aesthetics. Organized by state, then by park, the book covers divergent geographical settings, including the homes of former presidents, historic hotels, and the unique attractions of each area. Brief histories are provided for each park, as are travel directions, and biographical sketches of the persons for whom many of the parks are named. Black and white photographs and maps provide added detail. Kaiser is an architectural consultant and author of two other books; he was affiliated with Syracuse U. for 20 years. Annotation c.
