    Promising review: "This bag has been with us on multiple hikes, backpacking, and road trips including in Peru and Scotland, through sunshine and rain. The best $20 investment ever. It holds a lot, is comfortable to carry, and folds into a compact pouch when not in use. It has just the right number of pockets to organize what we need accessible.

    3. A waterproof, fold-up blanket ready to be dad's new go-to nap/picnic blanket. No more complaining about wet grass at the park!


    Promising review: "Great for camping and picnics. I have used this several times for outdoor festivals. The blanket is high quality, washes well. I line dry mine. The bottom is waterproof, so it is perfect for the beach to lay out on. The best part is the pocket with zippers, great for keys and my phone! Folds up and carries great." —Dink1

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    4. A monthly Jerky Snob subscription for anyone who appreciates real jerky – because depending on anything else to fuel outdoor activities is a big *mis steak*.

    What you get: choose from two bags, half a pound, or a pound of jerky each month; and all the jerky is free of MSG, nitrates, nitrites, and high fructose corn syrup.

    Promising review: "Alright, so my husband and I love jerky but, the real stuff. We didn't want processed, nasty gas station jerky, we wanted the 'craft' of jerky. We found it with Jerky Snob! The fact that they choose jerky from companies all over the country and, send various flavor profiles is awesome. It makes you feel like you're giving back to your fellow jerky lovers, and there's a taste for everyone. Plus, it's not processed crap! Hooray for jerky!" —Gabriella

    Get it from Cratejoy for $15/month.

    5. A cute little beehive that eco-friendly fathers everywhere will adore. This hive is designed for pollinator bees to live in and is an ideal home for them to raise baby bees! Dads helping bees become dads is just too pure 🐝.


    Pollinator bees can pollinate about 100 times more plants than the average honeybee worker! This hive comes with easy-to-follow instructions.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome bee hive. My husband loves it so much that he wants to order another one." —Raspberry lover's wife

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $40.

    6. A compact key holder for dad to simply stash keys into. Say goodbye to bulky key rings, and get the outdoor bundle version (Swiss Army knife included!).

    Features: includes two-year subscription to KeyportID online lost and found program and two-year limited warranty

    Promising review (for the Keyport Pivot Key Organizer): "The Pivot is an amazing multi-tool that has the ability to really transform your daily life and activities. It’s made entirely out of metal — anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and hardened spring steel — and will hold your keys, tool inserts, and smart tech modules like a multi-tool, pocket knife, and mini-flashlight. The device features a unique locking mechanism — Pivot Locking Mechanism — that is fully adjustable to provide you with the right amount of tension for your personal taste, and it will not loosen over time. The Pivot also has a D-Ring for loose items. In addition to a superior design over other types of key organizers, the Pivot also features Keyport’s lost and found system, KeyportID, which helps you find your Pivot should it become lost." —Nicholas Calderone

    Get them from Amazon: the Keyport Pivot Key Organizer for $19.99 (available in three colors, inserts sold separately), or the Keyport Pivot Outdoor Bundle for $57.99 (available in three colors, includes Swiss army folding knife, mini-flashlight, and multi-tool).

    7. A set of five grilling spices to ensure dad's next BBQ is spicy, smoky, and flavorful AF.


    This kit comes with five spices — Grill Master for grilled meat and veggies, Smokey Southwest to add some spice to taco night, Citrus Pepper that sounds like a more delish version of classic lemon pepper seasoning 👀, Fresh Bay for all your seafood needs, and Peppered Habanero for anyone who loves spicy food.

    Promising review: "I bought these as a father’s day gift for my dad who is an avid griller and smoker. All of the spices had a unique flavor that was very robust and distinct. The fact that there is no sodium makes them even better! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves working with herbs and spices wit spices, and is an avid griller." —Stephanie Brosch

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99.

    8. A veggie buds club subscription that just may be exactly what dad needs to encourage kids to grow, eat, and dare I say it — love their veggies. Truly a wondrous gift the whole family can enjoy.


    What you get: A monthly box filled with things like arts and crafts supplies, a growing project with seeds, cooking activities, stickers, veggie-themed toys, and more!

    Promising review: My son has sensory processing disorder. Food is a big trigger for him, it has to be the right temperature, texture, color, and shape! Not only does my son look forward to seeing the iconic veggie box arrive in the mail, but he will play imaginative role play with 'veggie boxes' being delivered and feeding his stuffed animals the veggie of the month. The Veggie Buds Club has also given me the tools on how to teach my kids fun and cleaver ways to love veggies. My kids help with making the recipes and planting the seeds in their own garden. I no longer disguise veggies but openly say that yummy food was cauliflower, and you liked it! My kids also love the sticker charts that come with each package to track and motivate them to eat that particular veggie. Thank you Veggie Buds Club for enriching our lives with high quality food and experiences that empower us to put healthy food in our bodies!" —Laurel C.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $21.95+ a month (available in two sizes).

    9. A Lifestraw personal water filter your dad can safely stick into a river and drink from! This is a backpacker's dream come true.

    Promising review: "Used it on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm, just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston

    Get it from Amazon for $17.47.

    10. A classic vacuum-sealed Stanley bottle that'll keep drinks piping hot for hours on end. It's leakproof and comes with a lifetime warranty. If you want to give your dad a gift you can inherit 30 years from now, this is the one!

    Promising review: "It's a Stanley thermos. My family has been using these for 30+ years. The quality is outstanding. Great for keeping hot liquids hot for hours and hours in the car. The seal on these when you screw the lid on is what has always made me like this product. It just doesn't wear out. I fish for 8+ hours in 20 degree weather, and it keeps my coffee piping hot!" —L. Lemur

    Get the 1-quart from Amazon for $19.82 or the 2-quart for $48.28.

    11. A budget-friendly camp griddle so dad can turn the campsite grill into an *eggcellent* breakfast station.

    Promising review: "I have had mine since November 2015 and love it. I do almost ALL my camping cooking outdoors. It's part of the fun of camping for me, plus it keeps cooking odors out of the camper. I was using a frying pan over the grill till I got this griddle, now it's my 'go to' breakfast utensil. I can have pretty much everything done at once with it, and it fits on my gas grill perfectly." —P. Wittorf

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    12. A Bush Craft guide any outdoorsman is guaranteed to love, especially if it is time to teach the kids the ways of the wild.

    Promising review: "It’s a good, basic beginner bushcraft/wilderness survival book that can also be enjoyed by an experienced outdoors person because of the author’s credentials, writing style, and content. The book focuses on Dave’s view of bushcraft – taking advantage of what nature makes available to you using a minimal amount of gear to survive and thrive in the natural world. Dave’s detailed section on Tools is especially helpful for people new to camping. We also like Dave’s 'Four Ws' relating to setting up a camp – Wood, Water, Wind and Widowmakers." —G. Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $13.04.

    13. A sturdy volleyball set you can set up in just a few minutes in the backyard or at the beach, then surprise dad with a family volleyball tournament on Father's Day!

    Set includes: one baden match point volleyball, one regulation size volleyball net, one ball pump w/needle, two heavy duty adjustable steel poles, one set of weather-resistant boundary lines, and one durable carry bag

    Promising review: "I've gone through my fair share of cheap $30 sets that bend and drag and are generally terrible, so I did a bunch of research looking for a good, well priced net. This one takes the cake! Not only is it easy to setup (about 10-15 minutes from cutting the box open to staking the boundary lines), but it STAYS UP! The net is wide, high, and there is no sag at all! The poles are metal, and the tension ropes are grounded with very long stakes that actually STAY IN THE GROUND! The net even has enough tension to bounce the ball off of and continue play, which is something you don't normally get from a 'mobile' volleyball net. I would be thoroughly impressed with just the net and the poles, but the fact that it comes with a nice quality ball AND good boundary lines is the icing on the cake. The boundary lines are already mapped out, and they're bright yellow so they stand out. Overall this set is the best I've ever seen. It's mobile and easy to put up/take down, but yet it holds up just as good as a permanent setup! I HIGHLY recommend for anyone looking." —Brandon Conley

    Get it from Amazon for $111.99.

    14. A double camping hammock ideal for anyone who loves to *hang loose* and relax in the great outdoors, or anyone who appreciates a good backyard nap (me). All you need is two trees or poles to set this babe up!,

    This hammock comes with ropes, strips, and carabiners. It folds into a durable travel pouch and takes less than three minutes to set it up. Plus, it can hold up to 500 pounds!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this hammock so much. I’ve used it all the time and it’s super durable. I’ve also used it with friends, so it is definitely good as a double hammock (I was worried about it holding and fitting two people but it does with no problem)! I recommend it to all my friends looking to buy one, and I’m planning on getting my uncle one for Father’s Day (the rest of my family already has them)!" —Romeo Perez

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in four colors).

    15. A hand-made, personalized hiking stick to help your dad feel a little ~boulder~ hiking up hills.

    He'll proudly yell "my kid got me this" when he gets to the top.

    Promising review: "This beautiful walking stick arrived in perfect condition ahead of schedule for Father's Day. The engraving was gorgeous and as ordered. Even the shipping box was special. Highly recommend!" —Jane Langel

    Get it from Rocky Mountain Glow on Etsy for $48+ (customize the name you want on the stick, the font, and design/no design).

    16. An engraved pocket knife that just may make you the favorite child this Father's Day.


    Features: 3.25" long blade, 3 mm thick stainless steel, assisted opening, partially serrated, belt clip, can engrave up to two lines

    Promising review: "Was a gift for my father-in-law. As a man who uses specialized knives for work every day, I was rather impressed with the quality of the knife. The engraving was flawless, and it made a great gift." —W. R. Longcore

    Get it from Amazon for $25.95.

    17. An investment-worthy fixed gear single speed bike perfect for the dad who commutes via cycling, or lives for leisurely rides in the park. I have a bike from State Bicycle's core line I use regularly in NYC, and I swear by it!


    Promising review: "This is a nice affordable single speed bike! I bought this bike mainly for short commutes and leisurely rides. I have had many steel framed single speeds and fixed gear bikes over the years, and out of the box this is my favorite so far. On every other reasonably priced/mid range single speed I've had, I ended up having to replace the stock tubes and tires among other things, to make it actually ride-able. This was not the case here. Also, the 4130 line is MUCH lighter than comparably priced single speeds I've had from various manufacturers." —A. Dude III

    Get it from Amazon for $414.84+ (available in sizes 46 cm–62 cm and 10 colors).

    18. A pair of comfortable Teva hurricane sandals that'll go with anything and hold up on hikes and camping trips.

    Promising review: "Love these. Had them for almost two years now. Brought them with me on several outdoor adventures, including a two day trek in Arizona. Even on the most vertical rocks, the straps never tore or showed signs of wear. Very comfortable, affordable, and practical. You can use them in any situation. All around great!" —Brandon McCane

    Get them from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in sizes 8-14 and six colors).

    19. An ultralight, inflatable pillow so your dad can slumber like a log at the end of a hard day setting up camp.,

    Promising review: "Best ultralight pillow! So easy to blow up and use. The valve is one way, meaning you don't have to put your mouth into valve to keep the air in. You can just blow into valve without touching the valve to inflate it. Deflating it is also very easy. Just press a button on the valve to open it and let air out. There's a cap over the valve so you will not accidentally press the deflation button on the valve. You can adjust the firmness of the pillow by adding in or letting air out. It collapses to a small package, smaller than a can of soda." —Tom A

    Get it from Amazon for $15.47 (available in seven colors).

    20. A Columbia sun hat to make any ocean-side dad jump for joy, and quickly ~bounce back~ from the heat.

    Features: omni-shade UPF 50 sun protection, omni-wick sweat band,

    adjustable chin strap, adjustable drawcord and toggle at back

    Promising review: "Got this for my husband for Father's Day, and he loves it! We spend a lot of time at the pool and the ocean, and it does a great job of protecting his face and neck from the sun. Thinking about getting one for myself as well." —Melissa Dippo

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50+ (available in five colors).

    21. A Tackle Tek backpack with an integrated LED light system and plenty of storage for tackle boxes, sunglasses, pliers, and all the fishing gear a father could need.

    Features: integrated LED light system, permanent mounted sunglass holder, removable plier holder, protective rain cover, large adjustable padded shoulder straps

    Promising review: "Great for Father's Day — hubs loves it! I opted for the backpack because he is always hiking to his fishing holes. It's big enough to fill with all of his gear, and the light illuminates what he's looking for in the dark. It's way too hot to fish during the day here in Arizona. He would recommend it anyone looking for a tackle box." —Doxie Lover

    Get it from Amazon for $172.63.

    22. And a bass whisperer Man Crate packed with tons of fishing gear that'll make dad jump for joy...after he opens this crate up with the provided crow bar. If you can think of a better present for a fisherman, let *minnow*.

    Man Crates

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my dad's birthday, and he absolutely LOVED it! He couldn't stop saying how awesome it is, and kept bragging about it. He even loved the crate itself and the pry bar, and said he's taking the pry bar to work to use. I even got a text from him the next day saying it's the coolest gift he's ever received. Definitely a hit, and I would recommend this as a gift for anyone that is into fishing!" —Nicki

    Crate includes: top-water weed pivot frog or spin-r-bait, mid-Range warpig, shallow-water pitbull, trusty worm blower, 6-pack neoprene insulated cooler, portable dial scale, needle-nose pliers, sunflower seeds

    Get it from Man Crates for $84.99.

    23. A durable big and tall sleeping bag specially designed for one big and tall human, or two adults. Don't let Sasquatch steal it!


    Time for dad's sleeping bag from the '80s to go...

    Features: water-resistant, for camping in mild temperatures down to 32 °F, can accommodate adults up to 6'6, packs down into compression sack

    Promising review: "Used this bag for the first time on a three-day backpacking trip on the AT. First sleeping bag I ever owned that worked this well for me (I'm 6'5"). Compression sack works great, very comfy and compact. Temps were in lower 40s at night, no issues. Thanks, great product!" —Fred Gately

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    24. And an easily packable and inflatable sleeping pad you'll probably thank once dad stops grumbling about his achy back.

    Promising review: "Great bang for your buck. Inflates with about 15 breaths. Comfortable on the ground. Shields you from feeling every little leaf and twig under you. Obviously not best for very cold weather camping, if you're needing this to help insulate you from cold ground. But for basic camping and down to about 45-50 degrees, it works." —Jill Basilone

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in three colors).

    25. A spacious eight-person tent that'll get the whole family excited to spend some time outdoors, and keep everyone dry if it rains.


    Features: large front awning for dry tent entry, rain fly, zippered windows, mesh roof vents, gear loft, carry bag included

    Promising review: "Great, spacious. easy to assemble. I'm 6'1" and could stand comfortably in the main bedroom. We had two working full Coleman cots with side tables on them, and still a wide space on either side. The front room was lower, but a great feature for storing all our stuff/mud room etc. We loved all the open window options, and the roof for star gazing etc. Well-made tent. We used it for the first time camping at Red Top Mountain State Park in GA. Second night, had a very heavy thunderstorm with excessive rain. Tent stayed dry! The roof cover worked very well, it was a good test. We really love this tent." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $140+ (available in three colors).

    26. A monogramed cooler chair so everyone will know who brought the cold ones to the fishing spot.

    Features: can be personalized with a first name or with initials, holds 24 pre-chilled drink cans

    Get it from Uptown Monogram Shop on Etsy for $35.50+ (available in 15 colors and two fonts).

    27. A Dutch oven and a Dutch oven lid stand that'll make the whole family sing "this is how we *stew* it" by the campfire.


    Promising review (for the Dutch oven lid stand): "My brother is always looking for a rock on which to place his Dutch oven lids. Invariably we end up with unwanted mineral content in the food when the lid slips, or the rock is not as clean as it might appear. This is excellent for keeping the lids clean and safe. It also allows me to raise the dutch oven itself when needed to control more airflow below the cooking surface. I may even get another, as I generally cook with two to three camp ovens simultaneously." —D.M. Stuart

    Promising review (for the Dutch oven): "Love my Dutch oven. We made breakfast casserole — eggs, hash browns, cheese and bacon for breakfast. Biscuits with garlic butter for a side at dinner one night, lasagna (from scratch) and cinnamon rolls in one camping trip in this Dutch oven. I highly recommend buying one of these and learning how to cook over hot coals. It is truly amazing. I cannot wait to lean even more ways to cook. ***An important tip*** line your Dutch oven with a crock pot baking bag OR foil before cooking for easy clean up. Your cook time and quality of your food doesn't get altered when lining your oven, and you virtually won't have wash it out afterwards." —Mommyx3

    Get them from Amazon: the Dutch oven lid stand for $12.98 and a Dutch oven for $46.99+ (available in three sizes).

    28. A Paracord key chain sure to *unravel* your dad's heart (seriously though, it unravels into very useful survival rope!).

    Be prepared to listen to your dad rave for 20+ minutes on how great this keychain is, and how many ways he would use it in a wilderness survival situation.

    This Paracord keychain unravels into four feet of rope that can hold up to 350 lbs.

    Promising review: "Fast shipping as always. I've bought a couple of the wide Paracord bracelets from them, and they are quality made. Same with the key chains. They come in packs of two, so I gave the other one to my son (great stocking stuffer). The carabiners that come on them are very solid. Great service as always. Thanks." —ozman

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors).

    29. A seed kit for anyone who wants their life (and their recipes) to be filled with funky vegetables — this kit comes with everything you need to grow striped tomatoes, purple carrots, red Brussels sprouts, yellow courgettes, and rainbow Swiss chard!


    Aside from seeds, you'll also get five biodegradable pots, five peat discs, five plant markers, and instructions.

    Promising review: "My dad is really into growing exotic vegetables, such as black bell peppers and purple spinach, so I knew this funky vegetable kit would be the perfect Father's Day gift. He was really happy when he got it and couldn't wait to plant them. His garden is pretty full so he's starting with the purple carrots for now. I'll update my review once they grow (if they grow).

    Update (8/11/16): It's been about two months and my dad said the carrots are growing fine so far. I've included a couple of pictures of them sprouting. I'm updating my rating from 4 to 5 stars since this kit appears to be legit. My dad loves it.

    Update (9/28/16): The purple carrots are ready to harvest, which he ate with his dinner. He said they were actually sweeter than regular carrots. My dad also planted the chard, which are also growing great. He's yet to plant the other vegetables, but I'll update if he does. Overall, this kit has turned out to be a great gift for sure." —Jheneya

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    30. A pair of waterproof binoculars well-suited for some serious bird watching.

    Features: full 10x magnification, 42mm objective lens diameter, multi-coated eco-glass lenses, turn-and-slide rubber eyecups, flip down lens caps, water and fog-proof

    Promising review: "Absolutely fantastic. A great buy! These binoculars really gather the light well, and give crystal clear images. Such a difference from other binoculars! They are truly worth of the investment if you are serious about birding. Great value!" —Kenneth

    Get them from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in four sizes).

    31. A monthly fly-fishing subscription to help you get dad something he really wants, even if you don't know a flying thing about fly fishing.

    What you get: 12 premium fishing flies, fishing gear and tools, trail snacks,

    stickers, and informative fly fishing reading material

    Promising review: "I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband, he has received two boxes. He is extremely excited, and has caught several fish with his flies." —Claudia

    Get it from Cratejoy for $16.95/month.

    32. A "be who you needed when you were younger" tee made by a queer-owned company to *summit* good vibes and pride for LGBTQIA dads during laid back days at the campsite.


    Get it from Flavnt for $26.99 (available in sizes XS–3X and three colors).

    33. An outdoors percolator coffee pot so good, it'll make your dad say "I love you ~a latte~."

    Can't have camping without camp coffee!

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly. My only complaint is the damn coffee tasted so good, my wife wants me to keep using it instead of the coffee machine." —Tim B

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    34. And a titanium camping cup made to be dad's go-to for outdoor coffee or tea time. It's heavy-duty, but lightweight with foldable handles for easy packing.

    Promising review: "After four days of use, I officially love this mug. I use it mostly to boil water, and drink coffee with my Aeropress." —Stefan C

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available with or without lid).

    35. A compact, camping cookware set (complete with mini stove and piezo ignition) for those backpacking trips dad is always dreaming about taking.

    Set includes: 1 liter anodized aluminum non-stick pot, pot cover, non-stick pan, two BPA-free bowls, folding stainless steel spork, fork, spoon and knife, BPA-free soup spoon, wooden spoon spatula, one carabiner, mini stove with piezo ignition, cleaning sponge, nylon travel bag drawstring pouch, survival paracord bracelet (with compass), and a 10-recipe e-book.

    Promising review: "I LOVE the cooking set! I actually took it backpacking right after I got it, and it was the perfect size for one person. The bowls are just right for oatmeal in the morning, and the larger pot was the right size to cook enough rice and lentils for two people. The handles are wonderfully sturdy, and all the utensils that came with the set collapse to a nice size; and are light enough to carry. I loved that the set had a ladle for it, I'm not sure I've seen a collapsible ladle before. I also liked that the carry bag was not mesh so it kept out dirt and critters." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    36. A monthly subscription hiker's box filled with premium gear and snacks. The next time your dad won't take you camping without bringing every snack in existence, you'll be covered.

    What you get: two to three unique and premiere gear items, three to six filling snacks (trail bars, trail mixes, jerky, dehydrated meals, etc.)

    Promising review: "The Hiker Crate is awesome, the new gear every month is quality. The edible snacks are from some of the newest companies on the market. We use the trail fuel on scout camp outs and family day hikes. If you like the food or any items, there are usually discount promo codes from your next order. For the value, this box is untouchable, and perfect for the weekend hiker or survivalist. Great stuff. " —Marvin

    Get it from Cratejoy for $30/month.

    37. A personalized engraved pocket compass dad just might treasure too much to take into the woods.

    Get it from Uptown Monogram Shop on Etsy for $35 (available in three metals).

    38. A pair of Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger 5 running shoes as colorful and supportive as they are easy to clean! These speak to my personal dad aesthetic andddd I am smashing that "add to cart" button right now.


    Promising review: "Pretty great shoes. Been on five runs so far on rocks, mud, and grass, and I'm pleased with results. The shoes; although bright; are really easy to clean and dry quickly. I also like the differing foams for the heel midsole and forefoot which makes the shoe super comfortable. You'll need to make your laces are nice and tight, or the centre of your foot will hurt." —15897561322

    Get them from Nike for $130 (available in sizes 6–15 and three colors).

    39. And a pair of waterproof socks to ensure dad stays dry the next time he is up against a slippery river rock, a three-day rainy bike trip, or a jog in the rain.

    Promising review: "Wow! These socks perform just as advertised. I did a three day bike camping trip on Pine Creek in Pennsylvania over the weekend, and it rained every day – heavily at times – with temperatures only in the mid 50s. The trail was saturated, and camp was soaked, but these socks kept my feet dry and warm for three days straight under a pair of open Keen cycling sandals. I can HIGHLY recommend them!" —Brian Raines

    Get them from Amazon for $26.25 (available in sizes S–XXL).

    40. An outdoor fish and game cleaning table with a quick-connect stainless steel faucet that should have existed back when my dad and I were getting fish guts all over the deck after a fishing trip, but alas. This table is also super handy for a convenient water-hookup at campsites or outdoor work sites!,

    Promising review: "Very sturdy table! We took this table camping and used it for food prep, hand washing and dishwashing station. Our site didn't have any water hookups, but a few items from the hardware store helped get this sink running. We hooked a water jug up to a foot pump for hands-free cleaning." —kcu2407

    Get it from Amazon for $66.02.

    41. And a coffee table book filled with an illustrated history of national parks for any outdoorsy dad to enjoy the wilderness and all its glory from home.

    Promising review: "I got this book from the library, and read it from cover to cover. I decided to buy it for my father for Father's Day, because he has always loved nature and visiting our country's parks. He is 86 years old, and the book sparked many wonderful memories for him. Stories I had never heard before. What a wonderful, beautiful book." —Barbara F.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.50 (hardcover).
