You Are Home: An Ode to the National Parks

Out of stock
Beneath the soaring doorways of stone,

and peaks that pierce the ceiling of clouds,

from every river, star, and stone

comes the eternal refrain:

you are home.

In simple, soaring language and breathtaking art, acclaimed author-illustrator Evan Turk has created a stirring ode to nature and nation. From the rugged coast of Maine to the fiery volcanoes of Hawaii, You Are Home reminds us that every animal, plant, and person helps make this land a brilliant, beautiful sanctuary of life.

Author’s note. Artwork note. Map of US National Parks. More about the parks and animals in the book. Full-color pastel illustrations.
