New Free Book Celebrates California’s
National Parks & Historic Sites
San Francisco, CA (January 10, 2016) –– San Francisco’s Bay Area Travel Writers (BATW) are celebrating the National Park Service Centennial with a new publication: Travel Features & Photos: California’s National Parks, Monuments, Trails, Seashores, and Historic Sites.
Released in early 2016, the spectacular, full-color 128-page magazine-style book covers both world-famous destinations like Yosemite and Hearst Castle, and lesser-known gems such as Filoli Estate, Little Petroglyph Canyon, Scotty’s Castle, and the John Muir Trail.
BATW’s award-winning, professional travel journalists and photographers are on stage in the new book, with 46 articles and nearly 200 photographs.
“California is home to 9 national parks and hundreds of national monuments, seashores, trails, historic sites and preserves, from 3.3-million-acre Death Valley National Park to the tiny Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site. Some, like Yosemite National Park, are famous around the world, while many others are overlooked jewels.” (from a recent article in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat).
The Book is Free!
Travel Features & Photos: California’s National Parks, Monuments, Trails, Seashores, and Historic Sites is available as a free download at batw.org/publications. Sure to inspire travelers to visit the parks, trails and sites throughout 2016 and beyond, the book may also be purchased online, and makes a fabulous gift for history buffs and lovers of the outdoors.
