  • Grand Canyon National Park is one of the planet’s Seven Natural Wonders, with 4.4 million visitors each year. Who keeps all those people safe, fed, and happy? When the wind blows at White Sands National Monument, legend says the centuries-old ghost of a Mexican maiden appears in the shifting sands. In Yosemite National Park, there’s a guy who tracks road kill with a clipboard and a shovel to pry flattened victims from the blacktop. This colorful collection goes behind the scenery at America’s most popular national parks and introduces listeners to engrossing new perspectives on these native treasures.

    "Hazards, wonders, and famed and lesser-known legends fascinate in this compilation of interviews and narrated descriptions of the country's most treasured and most obscure national parks. . . .This colorful collection never ceases to amaze and inspire."
