Atlas of Natural America
Atlas of Natural America showcases some of the most awe-inspiring scenery on the planet and underscores the importance of safeguarding our continent's myriad landforms, endangered creatures, and plant life. Explaining the natural forces shaping topography, soil, climate, flora, and fauna across the centuries, writers Thomas Schmidt, Mel White, Mark Miller, and others discuss key contributions made by such legends as John Muir and Aldo Leopold. The atlas also serves as an indispensable travel guide, offering information on visitor services and activities to help make many a North American journey a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
