Acadia National Park offers unique attractions that have made it a premier destination, and, despite my initial ambivalence, I am glad to have gone there. It is a treasure not to be missed.
Spirituality and the State by Kerry Mitchell examines state power through a lens of “spirituality” in America’s national parks. This book shows how affection for parklands relies on a love of nature which is also a love of oneself and of one’s nation. Though intellectually engaging, Mitchell grounds his analysis in stories of people enjoying national parks. ♨
