About this item
The outdoor enthusiast’s dream bucket list is embodied in this illustrated celebration of our greatest national forests, from Alaska to Florida.For more than a century, America’s national forests have proved an environmental gift and cultural treasure, our spectacular backyard. Under the management of the U.S. Forest Service, this system of public lands encompasses 193 million acres of mountains, prairies, rivers, and canyons—much of it undiscovered, but all accessible.Officially published with the U.S. Forest Service, this book features the 30 most notable national forests—while also celebrating more than 100 different national forests in 44 states—from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the Olympics of Washington. Unlike the national parks, Americans can use these lands for all manner of recreation, truly earning these tremendous resources the moniker of “America’s backyard.” This book is a treasure for all readers who use and cherish these lands.
