What I do feel compelled to point out in terms of negative criticism, though, is the fact that the entire chapter "Eastern Hardwoods" (chaptrer V) has been printed a second time and thus comes up again three pages into chapter VI ("Alaska"), before the latter chapter comes in full size. What's more, in this mixup, the sub-chapter "Gates of the Artic" has been entirely lost except for the first page. This is a shame given that this is the second edition of "Treasured Lands". Did no one notice this major error in the first edition or did it happen only in the second edition? Anyway, this is the main reason, why I rate the book with 4 stars instead of 5. A second, minor one, is that I find the photos about Yellowstone NP, a signature park for most people, rather mediocre compared to the glittering rendering of other parks.
Neverhteless, apart from these two aspects, buyers of this must-see/must-read will not be disappointed but delighted by 3.5kg/7.7lb of visually stunning and highly informative pages!
