From the high peaks of the Rockies to the lows of Death Valley, from the Statue of Liberty in the East to the redwood forest of the West, and from the panoramic views of the Grand Canyon to getting up close and personal to wildlife in Yellowstone, Basher invites you to take a journey through some of the United States’ most spectacular national parks, recreation areas, and preserves—and take in a few national monuments while you’re at it! Paddle a canoe through the Everglades, zip down gypsum dunes at White Sands, and count the brown bears at Katmai. There’s no end to the natural wonders you’ll see.

Perfect for home or school, Basher's highly original books make difficult concepts tangible, understandable, and even lovable. Chatty first-person text and stylish, contemporary character illustrations give a voice, personality, and story to each topic—a brilliant way to communicate science, history, and geography.
