Campfire Stories brings together tales about our national parks, some by well-known writers such as John Muir, Bill Bryson, and Terry Tempest Williams, while others are from pioneer diaries or have been passed down through generations of indigenous peoples.
Co-editors Dave and Ilyssa Kyu spent six months traveling and researching the stories collected here. They gathered the best materials from public libraries, historical societies, arts and cultural organizations, museums, research centers, and national park archives. The result is a diverse collection of entertaining and engaging writings that reflect each park’s essence and feature larger-than-life heroes, park-specific legends and histories, animal tales, and much more.
Join Dave and Ilyssa for an evening of storytelling, readings, and signing of their new book Campfire Stories at United By Blue's Flagship store. The book will be available for purchase, refreshments will be provided.
