From the cascading waterfalls of Yosemite to the unique geothermal features of Yellowstone, the U.S. national parks are among the most breathtaking destinations in the world. Founded to preserve such natural beauty for posterity, the national parks represent one of America’s crowning achievements and international treasures.

Award-winning photographer Pete McBride, along with best-selling authors Kevin Fedarko and Hampton Sides, takes us on a gripping adventure story told through stunning, never-before-seen photography and powerful essays.

This is the most spectacular collection of Grand Canyon imagery ever seen, showing beauty from vantages where no other photographers have ever stood. It will also highlight the conservation challenges this iconic national park faces as visitation numbers grow and development pressures surrounding it mount. This photography will inspire and remind us why we protect such a cherished public space. Proceeds benefit the Grand Canyon Association, and an accompanying documentary will tentatively release at Sundance in 2018--all in time for the national park's centennial.

A Century of Impact celebrates the first 100 years of the National Parks Conservation Association, tracing its history and vision through stunning photography and tales of victory in a beautifully designed keepsake book. From its founding by the same visionaries who helped to create the National Park Service to present-day battles to protect our public lands, the National Parks Conservation Association has been the independent, non-partisan protector of America's favorite places. A Century of Impact presents this admirable legacy through richly illustrated tales of an impassioned organization in action - fighting off threats to park lands, water, air and wildlife, and advocating for a park system that tells a more complete American story. Readers will enjoy fascinating and often untold tales of park protection - such as saving Olympic's old-growth forests from WWII lumber production; restoring the endangered Florida panther in the greater Everglades ecosystem; keeping the nation's largest landfill from the doorstep of Joshua Tree; defeating a proposed casino sited within cannon range of the hallowed ground of Gettysburg - and an inside look at how persistent advocacy led to the creation of parks from Great Basin and Tallgrass Prairie to Pullman, Stonewall and Birmingham. With A Century of Impact, readers are invited to join NPCA's centennial celebration and discover how this humble organization has helped to shape the National Park System as we know it. More than that, it is a compelling reminder that the future of this nation's most sacred spaces lies in the hands of ordinary citizens, united to ensure that America's best idea endures for generations to come.
