Description

When President Teddy Roosevelt went camping with John Muir in 1903, it was a camping trip that led to the creation of the national parks. Muir, who wanted natural resources to be protected, asked Roosevelt to help. During TR's presidency, the government ended up protecting millions of acres of forest, doubling the number of national parks, and more.

This colorfully illustrated book tells the tale of that camping trip that made history—national park history! Written for children, it follows the two men as they camp at Yosemite and shows the effect it had on Roosevelt—and, of course, the entire nation.
