50 Greatest National Parks of the World

Available Now

From tracking down snow leopards in Bhutan to getting drenched by the tallest waterfall on Earth, award-winning travel writer Aaron Millar reveals the history, legends and cultures of the world’s greatest national parks and the insider secrets on how to see them at their most spectacular and jaw-dropping best.

National parks are home to the most treasured and beautiful places on Earth. They represent the identity of a country and the soul of its people. When we look across the red rock spires of the Grand Canyon, we connect with the spirit of the American West. When we walk among the endless grasslands of the Serengeti, we walk with the Maasai people too. National parks are the epitome of travel dreams, the canvasses for the greatest adventures of our lives.

Yet, due to the pressures of the mining, oil and gas industries, they are more threatened now than they have been for decades. Telling the story of the world’s greatest national parks has never been more vital, and relevant, than it is today.

Book Highlights:

  • Explores many lesser known and undiscovered national parks: North Luwanga, in Zambia, home of the walking safari, visited by only 500 people a year; Gwaii Haanas, in British Colombia, the Galapagos of the north, and many more.

 

  • Reveals the insider information, and expert tips, on how to see them best, from catching a ‘superbloom’ of wildflowers in Death Valley to having the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal all to yourself.

 

  • Features award-winning travel writing: Feel what it’s like to look a Grizzly in the eye in the backcountry of Denali or share airag liquor with the Golden Eagle hunters of the Mongolian steppe. This in-depth, and extremely well-researched, compendium is more than just a guidebook, it’s a window into the most awe-inspiring experiences on the planet.
