Praise for Great Lodges of the National Parks, Volume Two:


“What a spectacular book! Just a brief glance through the pages brought on an immediate desire to visit each and every one of the lodges. The melding of historical context and current use provides both a concise history lesson for each setting and insight into how each lodge was developed. After being inspired by the splendid images and relevant data in this book, you will surely want to live a bit of history by visiting these special places yourself.” — Gay Hunter, Museum Curator, Olympic National Park, Washington
