This year, I was given an exciting challenge: to serve as project editor on a special publication about the world’s most stunning national parks, AND to write the manuscript. That meant I got to spend months trolling through ‘best of’ lists, stunning images of beautiful places, and immersing myself in one of my life’s great loves: the wild outdoors. The result is a publication I’m very proud of. It contains over 60 parks from around the world, along with interesting facts and stats about its particular highlights, when to visit, and what other parks might be nearby. I hope this publication inspires readers to visit and treasure our national parks, as writing and editing it did for me!
