Fodor's The Complete Guide to National Parks of the West Wins Lowell Thomas Award
Congratulations to the editors of Fodor's The Complete Guide to National Park of the West, which was awarded the Lowell Thomas Bronze Medal for Best Travel Guidebook. The Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition is the premier competition in this field, like the Pulitzer Prizes for travel journalism. Congratulations to editors Mike Nalepa and Debbie Harmsen. The competition is overseen by the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation and was judged by the faculty at the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
Comments from the judges on Fodor's The Complete Guide to National Parks of the West include, "Stuff it in the glove box and hit the road: This exhaustively researched guide has everything the traveler needs to tap into the riches of America's national parks. Q & As from park rangers, nifty little maps and lists of things to do in each park (besides places to eat and places to stay) make this the essential guide for the outdoors enthusiast. The design makes it easy to use and nice to look at."
