Dennis Drabelle, a local author, will be our presenter. Dennis’ book, “The Power of Scenery, Frederick Law Olmsted and the Origin of National Parks” marks the sesquicentennial (175th Year) of Yellowstone National Park’s creation. The release of this well-researched book also celebrates Olmsted’s 200 birth year.
“Published in time to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Yellowstone National Park on March 1, 2022, and the 200th birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted on April 26, 2022, The Power of Scenery tells the fascinating story of how the national park movement arose, evolved, and has spread around the world”.
Attendees may order a hard copy of the book through this link and bring it to the presentation. Dennis has agreed to sign your personal copy of his book.
You can also purchase a Kindle copy through the link but that is going to be exceedingly difficult for Dennis to sign
