Campfire Stories: Tales from America's National Parks brings together stories by well-known writers such as John Muir, Bill Bryson, and Terry Tempest Williams, as well those from pioneer diaries and family tales passed down through generations of indigenous peoples. Co-editors Dave and Ilyssa Kyu spent six months traveling and researching the stories collected here, and gathered materials from public libraries, historical societies, arts and cultural organizations, museums, research centers and national park archives. The goal was to discover entertaining, diverse, and engaging writings that reflect each park's essence'as well as just fun to share.
