Publisher's Summary

With generous splashes of popular culture and human interest, the NPR Road Trips series introduces you not only to far-off locations and unusual destinations, but to the people who inhabit them - and seek them out. Each story focuses on real locations, real people, and real history in the thought-provoking, imaginative and entertaining way you’ve come to expect from NPR.
Grand Canyon National Park is one of the planet’s Seven Natural Wonders, with 4.4 million visitors each year. Who keeps them safe, fed, and happy? When the wind blows at White Sands National Monument, legend says the centuries-old ghost of a Mexican maiden appears in the shifting sands. In Yosemite National Park, there’s a guy who tracks road kill with a clipboard and a shovel to pry flattened victims from the blacktop.
This colorful collection goes behind the scenery at America’s most popular national parks. It also visits lesser-known parks with thought-provoking tales to tell.
Includes


“Cast of Thousands Keeps Grand Canyon Humming”
“Old Army Friends, Divided At Gettysburg”
“Climbers Reclaim World Record on El Capitan”
And more.
