Campfire Stories Volume II: Tales from America’s National Parks and Trails

We rated this book:


Our National Parks are treasures and each has its own unique character and flavor. In this second recent volume of campfire stories, the editorial team of Dave and Alyssa Kyo have assembled solicited works from a variety of writers which express their impressions gathered from visits to these sites. Either in the form of essays, folk tales, poems, or other forms of prose, the contributors describe the impact that visits to the preserved area had on them.

The five National Parks and Trails selected for this volume include the challenging Grand Canyon, the grassy Florida Everglades, the rainy Olympic, the snowcapped Glacier, and the arid Joshua Tree parks, along with the hikers’ challenges in the Appalachian and Pacific Crest National Scenic Trails. Each section is introduced by the editors with notes about the history, special features, and the background of the original indigenous residents.

This is an enriching collection of readings suitable for basic information but especially appealing to those seeking to share impressions of these monumental settings that nature provides. Try taking some of these selections for communal campfire readings and feel the awe that the combination of site and mental imagery arouses in the listener. A must inclusion for your camping trips or for just enjoying nature.
