"A welcome demonstration of the breadth of possibilities in scientific work"
--Kirkus "With a conversationist bent, Carson describes just how accessible these real-life 'natural laboratories and living museums' are and how each individual can act with the same spirit of inquiry as the scientist-explorers detailed here."
--Booklist * "A well-written, unique, carefully organized treat for nature lovers and investigators."
--School Library Journal, starred review "Kids anticipating a trip to one of these parks may want to study up now and show off their impressive vocabularies when they arrive."
