Our Mark on This Land, A Guide to the Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps in America’s Parks by Ren and Helen Davis (SIGNED)


SIGNED BY REN AND HELEN DAVIS:  Our Mark on This Land celebrates the works and other lasting influences of the CCC. Section One provides a short but substantive history of the CCC context within which to more fully understand and appreciate the reasons for, and the enduring works and consequences of, the CCC effort. Section Two, the major part of the book, identifies, describes, and provides access information to more than 300 of those parks that provide the best remaining examples of CCC workmanship. These parks are divided into two groups Destination Parks, those that offer substantial and outstanding examples of the CCC work, and Other CCC-Related Parks, those that contain tangible and enduring results of the CCC effort. Numerous maps and photographs, both black-and-white and color, add additional dimensions and details to the information presented in Section Two. Section Three provides sources of additional information related to the theme of the book.
