McClelland, Linda Flint. Building the National Parks: Historic Landscape Design and Construction. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1998. Recalling the era of the great lodges at Yellowstone and Yosemite, Building the National Parks tells the story of how the National Park Service forged a rich legacy of buildings, roads, and trails that both harmonized with the natural scenery and accommodated visitors to the parks. Describing projects in such parks as the Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, Mount Rainier, Acadia, Carlsbad Cavern, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Yosemite, McClelland’s story of these early years, illustrated with 118 rare archival photographs, is one of remarkable feats of engineering and consistently responsible stewardship.
