“Within National Parks is room-glorious room-room in which to find ourselves, in which to think and hope, to dream and plan, to rest and resolve.” ~Enos Mills

I‘ve been following Amber Share on Instagram for quite awhile so I was especially excited to get this from @wideeyedreader for Mother‘s Day. I loved it ❤️

#StorySettings Day 4: #Mountain. I appreciated the juxtaposition of the poetic descriptions of each mountain and/or national park. I love how the essence of each place is captured by a few words – just four deceptively-simple lines – that speak of beauty, joy, wonder. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-pC1

I inhaled this book in a couple of lazy mornings.

If you like mysteries, I would definitely recommend this series. The setting is unique and it gives me insight into how the National Park Service works.

Needless to say, this was the bomb diggity!

Thunderstorms woke me early this morning so I got up. Coffee in hand, I delved into this book and am about 30% read.

This series isn't groundbreaking but it's an enjoyable read with an unique investigator-Harland is a investigator with the National Parks Service.

This series is fun and it's a great way to wrap up a staycation week.

A lovely introduction to a lot of the national parks around the US!

Separated out by regions, there‘s brief blurbs for all sorts of national parks. Then there‘s more in depth explorations of several of the parks.

The adorable artwork illustrates animals, plants, notable landmarks, & exciting phenomena in all of these locations.

This was a delight to share with my nibling, and I can‘t wait to take them to see these places! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

This is one of those books that ruins the dreams and silly ideas you have in your head regarding if you had made different choices in life. Specifically, it shows the many ways in which being a park ranger is frustrating and at times even traumatic. The book started off as a series of stories conveying how hard the ranger life is. As it progressed, it focused more on the lives of two specific rangers with results both tragic and touching. 4/5

3☆ The premise of the book was very intriguing, and the authors description of the National Parks she visited-all but 1 park, were great. Alas her personality throughout the book is irritating and way too self centered. And she wonders why she is where she is!

DieAReader 🥳Great! 👋🏻🤣😬…next! 3mo
Crazeedi @CBee thank you for hosting! I've read 3 of the 4 numbers from my kindle!! Whoohoo! 3mo

Great travelogue of the most crowded spots of protected nature in the nation, with a good bit of excellent social commentary about who travels and why and expectations, as well as many varied musings that come along with each park. It's neat the author decided to attempt to collect a junior ranger badge by completing booklets and their activities for every nation park visited. Light, humorous, informative, reflective. Good for this time of year.

This was definitely a case of the right book at the right time. With so much holiday craziness I only had time to read in little sips, which turned out to be the perfect way to read this story.
In 1898 Alex joins a field study in Yellowstone National Park and shocks the other scientists by being a woman 😱 The story touches on conservation, Native American displacement, feminism, and the nature of science.
