The Story of Big Bend National Park offers a comprehensive, highly readable history of the park from before its founding in 1944 up to the present John Jameson opens with a fascinating look at the mighty efforts involved in persuading Washington officials and local landowners that such a park was needed He details how money was raised and land acquired, as well as how the park was publicized and developed for visitors Moving into the present, he discusses such issues as natural resource management, predator protection in the park, and challenges to land, water, and air Along the way, he paints colorful portraits of many individuals, from area residents to park rangers to Lady Bird Johnson, whose 1966 float trip down the Rio Grande brought the park to national attention. This history will be required reading for all visitors and prospective visitors to Big Bend National Park For everyone concerned about our national parks, it makes a persuasive case for continued funding and wise stewardship of the parks as they face the twin pressures of skyrocketing attendance and declining budgets.
