Camping Trip That Changed America: Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, and our National Parks
(2 copies available)
In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt joined naturalist John Muir on a trip to Yosemite. Camping by themselves in the uncharted woods, the two men observed natural wonders and had conversations that would ultimately lead to the establishment of the National Parks system. Caldecott Medal winner Mordicai Gerstein captures the majesty of Yosemite in this rendition of a little-known but important story from United States history. Includes bibliographical references.
