The National Parks of the West are among Americas greatest treasures. Great Lodges of the West reminds us that these scenic wonderlands, best known for their mountains, canyons, geysers and waterfalls, are also dotted with brick-and-board evidence of our nations history.
Step outside your busy city life and recharge without the hassle of setting up a tent, cooking your own food, and backpacking in your own booze. Treat yourself to a night in one of these great lodges of the west and make your own stories to pass on for generations.
But the book, a companion to the PBS television series, Great Lodges of the West, also gives an illustrated history of the parks, as well as the conception, building, and architecture of each lodge inside and out—from Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone to Paradise Inn at Mount Rainier National Park.
