"National Geographic" Yosemite National Park Road Guide PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In 2004, Yosemite received 3.3 million visitors, 500,000 more than Yellowstone - the road guide sold more than 11,000 copies in a year. This guide is completely dedicated to driving the parks, with mileage markers and sight-by-sight descriptions. This user-friendly guide follows the major roads in Yosemite National Park with detailed maps. Along the way the guide highlights the best locations to see stunning wildlife, such as bighorn sheep and black bear, where to spot breathtaking geological formations and the sites of key historical events. The maps also clearly indicate the camping, fishing, and boating locations within the park. The book's design eliminates a major frustration of other road guides - having to count odometer mileage and flip back and forth between maps and text. Here, the text and maps are contiguous, all the visitor needs to find is the road and starting point. They can then follow the maps and descriptions as they drive along.

END ISBN: 0792241738 COPY: "Freedom Riders" compares and contrasts the childhoods of John Lewis, growing up in black America, and Jim Zwerg, growing up in white America, in a way that helps young readers understand the segregated experience of our nation's past. It shows how a common interest in justice created the convergent path that enabled these young men to meet as Freedom Riders on a bus journey south. No other book on the Freedom Riders has used such a personal perspective. These two young men, empowered by their successes in the Nashville student movement, were among those who volunteered to continue the Freedom Rides after violence in Anniston, Alabama, had left the original bus in flames with the riders injured and in retreat. Lewis and Zwerg joined the cause knowing their own fate could be equally harsh, if not worse. The historic journey they shared as Freedom Riders through the Deep South changed not only their own lives but our nation's history. AUTHOR BIO(S): Ann Bausum lives in Beloit, WI. Her most recent book for National Geographic, "With Courage
