Synopsis : The global popularity of outdoor recreation and ecotourism is on the increase. At present, there is little systematic information on the management practices that have been successful in National Parks. This book presents the issue of how to manage outdoor recreation in ways that protect the integrity of park resources and the quality of the visitor experience. Using case studies drawn from the U.S. National Park System, it illustrates a range of successful management approaches that can be applied worldwide. It is suitable for graduate and undergraduate students in outdoor recreation and park management practitioners.

Critique: "Manning and Anderson (both, Univ. of Vermont) have written a timely, pragmatic, and useful work, a must read for managers of all lands visited by tourists/outdoor enthusiasts, students in land management programs, and policy makers. The well-informed park user would also find it valuable. Part 1, divided into five chapters, provides a conceptual and methodological basis for the book. Chapter 1 is a concise conceptual framework. Following chapters survey human impacts on parks, and examine, evaluate, and apply management practices. Part 2 contains 20 succinct case study chapters that illustrate discrete management problems and remarkable success in the context of national parks. These include mitigation of trail use by millions of visitors and overuse of backcountry campsites in Acadia and on the Appalachian Trail; management of light, noise, and human waste problems Chaco, Muir Woods, and Mt. Whitney; successful handling of vegetation and habitat issues at the National Mall and at Katmai; and resolving visitor transportation and safety issues at Zion and Yosemite. The case studies are pithy, appropriate, and results-oriented. Chapter 26 in part 3 presents lessons learned through 36 management principles. Appendix A provides a toolbox of park problems and management solutions. Appendix B is available on a companion website. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries."--E. J. Delaney, formerly, National Park Service "Choice "
