My book, Before They’re Gone–A Family’s Year-Long Quest To Explore America’s Most Endangered National Parks, has received honorable mention in the Outdoor Literature category, the top awards category, from the prestigious National Outdoor Book Awards.

In it, I write about spending a year taking wilderness adventures with my wife, Penny, our nine-year-old son, Nate, and our seven-year-old daughter, Alex, in national parks that, because of climate change, are likely to be very different places by the time my kids are my age.

Read an excerpt from my book and reviewer comments about it, view a trailer, and find links to media coverage about my book at The Big Outside Book page.
