What's Cooking in Our National Parks
 by National Park Service Western Regional Office Cookbook Committee.

This now "almost-classic" title of National Park-iana  is a choice collection of over 500 highly prized recipes from employees of our national parks--not just the rangers, but those in personnel and administration, and management and maintenance and planning and design, plus park spouses. Includes sections on outdoor cooking and recipes for large (hundreds of eaters) crowds. Indexes show what persons and what parks contributed which recipes, and the recipes are grouped by type. Dishes include Cruzan Potatoes from the Virgin Islands, Pete's Potato Salad, Hawaiian Style Spareribs, Abalone Cabrillo, Crazy Cake with NPS Frosting, Navajo Fry Bread, Backpack Jerky, Cowboy Beans, Wilderness Molasses Cake for 250, Mormon Gravy, Clamdigger Sandwiches, Dandelion Wine, and of course Ranger Cookies. Royalty proceeds go to the Employees & Alumni Association of the National Park Service, where the money has traditionally been used for scholarship loans to its members' children. A steady seller over the years, there are now 58,000 copies in print. Many park cooperating associations and concessioners carry the book, as do outlets around parks and wherever cookbooks are sold.

Over 30 photos from America's parks, full color cover. 256 pages.

Oh, Ranger! A Book about the National Parks

by Horace M. Albright and Frank J. Taylor.

This is the classic, 1928 edition, Here is a nostalgic look at America's early national parks and their ranger service by their director of that time. Author Albright was also a long-time superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. Originally published in 1928 by Stanford University Press, and available continuously ever since, this book relates humorous stories of bears and other wild animals, Indians, fishing, park "dudes and sagebrushers" (hotel guests and campers, respectively), the fledgling ranger service, and the antics of the American tourist early in the roaring '20s. This edition includes the late author's last foreword and a tribute from a former president and early Yellowstone ranger, Gerald Ford.

To the pen-and-ink drawings from the original have been added 50 early park photographs. 160 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-068-1. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-068-3. Order #: VIST0068 paper$7.95

A book with a similar title, Oh, Ranger! True Stories form Our National Parks, was issued in 2007 with a collection of more recent ranger stories. Another recent book of ranger stories is called Hey Ranger, with more than one volume.
