    1. This was a pretty good read. Definatly lost stars as it went on, but started off very strong. I really liked the historical information, early park stuff and the photos were great (would have liked more). But the recent information, which took up nearly 1/2 of the book, was boring. Lots of name dropping. Do I care? I have no idea who these women are and if you aren't going to add more than one sentence per woman than you won't make me care who they are. But overall a really interesting read.


    2. An interesting book, but not very well written. The author tends to bounce all over the place; sometimes jumping back and forth between things she has already written. The organization seems to go in the order she intended, but doesn't necessarily go chronologically or by park. The book is also just brief summaries of individual women and the park service. Like reading a bunch of 1 page biographies of NPS women. Was really hoping for more.


    3. I reviewed this for the Journal of the West. It's a great reference work, filled with some great stories, but not the best narrative.
