Big Bend National Park Feature
Naturalist's Big Bend, by Roland H. Wauer and Carl M. Fleming, paints a picture of the park's diverse plants and animals.
Big Bend, The Story Behind the Scenery, by Carol E. Sperling and Mary L. Van Camp, is rife with colorful photos illustrating the park's history and geology.
For gleeful and awestruck thoughts on the Big Bend wilderness, check out God's Country or Devil's Playground, which collects the writing of nearly 60 authors.
The Natural History Association's Road Guide ($1.95) gives in-depth information on the web of paved and improved dirt roads running through the park—and the views you can see from them. Find it on sale at park visitor centers.
