Description

At the end of the twentieth century roughly 265 million people visited the 374 sites in the American National Park System. These places, designated and protected because of their significance to our nation's historical and natural heritage, contain some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States - landscapes that naturally lend themselves to outdoor recreation. In this book, veteran parks interpreter Roland H. Wauer introduces the pleasures of birding in the national parks of the American Southwest. From California to Texas, from hugely popular destinations such as Arizona's Grand Canyon to the mostly undiscovered shores of Amistad National Recreation Area, Wauer visits fourteen sites and gives us his advice on what birds to expect and where and how to find them.show more

Review quote

Mr. Wauers writing style is clear, readable and appropriate to his audience. Overall, the manuscript is well organized, and the length is appropriate to the subject matter. This book by Mr. Wauer nicely fills a niche for the beginning birder, especially since it discusses national parks, where most campers and visitors are ready to try and understand what surrounds them, such as the bird life.--Mark T.
