THE LIBRARY


Part of the fun after a trip or after visiting a site is the continued discovery. Most sites have a visitor center staffed with incredibly knowledgeable Staff and Park Rangers, Docents and Volunteers. I highly recommend visiting and engaging with these resources at the time of visit to help further guide your curiosity.

The internet is a wonderful resource to help cross check and verify information. However, without context and understanding what you are looking for, what to search for, the internet could lead you down the proverbial “rabbit hole.”

Below is a list/summary of books that I picked up at those visitor centers. Enjoy the insight and perspectives provided by these authors.
