Part of the Wish You Were Here series that illustrates beauty with every page you read. Illustrations are done by landscape photographers who know the areas and show the beauty and awe of this amazing national park and peninsula. 
There is nothing so fascinating as witnessing other creatures unselfconsciously going about their business on home turf, and I suddenly realize that is why I am feeling so happy. I imagine myself part of the bear’s world for a while, seeing these fresh mountain meadows through his eyes, walking through the high country with the certain sense of home and power that he feels, trading all my human choices for a life of simpler pleasures and predictable needs.

Photographs

For a general park guide with wonderful pictures, this is a great book. It's worth the money for the pictures.

Great Memories

I loved this photographic journey through an area that I visited a number of times when younger.

Coffee table book

Very pretty book with great photos, but not much information. The sort we used to call a coffee table book.
