Adventurer Jon Waterman is the award-winning author of several books on the American landscape, including several on the wilds of Alaska and the conflicts surrounding the Colorado River. His newest book, commissioned by National Geographic, is called “Atlas of the National Parks,” and contrary to the name, it’s no road map.
Listen to the interview below, or on any podcast app:
National Geographic calls their “Atlas of the National Parks” the first book of its kind. it’s a stunning glossy showcase of America’s spectacular park system richly illustrated with an inspiring and informative collection of maps, graphics, and photographs.
We found the whole approach to work really well, and the text is written beautifully. As a reader you dive in because each park is treated in a different way, with plenty of maps and diagrams that immerse you in a park’s geology and landscape.
The National Geographic Atlas to the National Parks comes out November 19th, it’s a fantastic, large, glossy, hardcover gift for the holiday season. And you can pre-order it now on Amazon. You can find more Jon Waterman’s other books at johnathanwaterman.com.
