In Volume 1, we read tales of grizzly encounters and streaking through Denali, personal relationships with temperamental elk in Yellowstone, and on finding beauty in housekeeping in Yosemite. Permanent Vacation, Vol. 2 explores even more stories from the national parks. Kayak through the Everglades with incognito alligators, learn the ways of the ancient Hawaiian tribes, and explore the friendship of a stubborn, yet affectionate mule. This collection of stories will grab you by your hiking boots and lead you through your favorite parks.

Stories from:

Acadia • Apostle Islands • Cape Cod • Chesapeake & Ohio Canal • Everglades • Glacier Bay • Grand Canyon •
Great Smoky Mountains • Gulf Islands • Isle Royale • Kenai Fjords • Olympic • Pu'uhonua o Hōnaunau •
Sequoia and Kings Canyon • Volcanoes • Yellowstone

Praise:

"As with any collection of essays, some are more interesting than others. Fortunately, most are sure to captivate you. This is definitely a book you will want to put on your summer reading list."

Lake Tahoe News, book review

"These accounts speak with awe, respect and sometimes humor about the vibrancy of many natural locales. In face of what often feels likes relentless human-centeredness, Permanent Vacation, volume 2, offers the bracing reality of people encountering the earth on the earth’s sempiternal terms.  Difficulties and rewards abound: the sum of these thoughtful voices confirms the oneness of wildness and the importance of national parks."

Baron Wormser, author of The Road Washes Out in Spring: A Poet’s Memoir of Living Off the Grid
