Guardians of the Parks is the unique story of the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA).
Created on the heels of the National Park Service, NPCA began as a citizens' organization to keep watch over the nation's national parks. It was charged with the duty of ensuring that the National Park Service remain true to its original purpose: to preserve these wild spaces as "virtually the only places where humans could seek and find answers to questions about nature and their relation to it." This book chronicles NPCA's efforts from its founding to the present day. John Miles has given us an "inside narrative," a history of strong personalities - such as Robert Sterling Yard, Sigurd Olsen, Anthony Wayne Smith, and Paul Pritchard - all struggling to define their own organization and its goals, and also to develop a protected park system for all citizens to enjoy.
This book tells not only their story, their motives, and lasting influence, but also the story of the national park themselves.
Adopting a comparative approach, the book examines the evolution of nationality law across the European Union since WWI. It explores the hypothesis that two factors, the experience of large-scale non-European immigration and the need to integrate a large and growing third country national population, have forced a convergence in European nationality law. The book accords attention to the role of gender and decolonisation in reforms to nationality law.
First crush, first love, first kiss-Ava learns about more than her heritage while vacationing in Scotland in this addition to the sweet and clean Flirt series!
Ava is going on vacation to Scotland, where she's supposed to learn more about her Scottish heritage. She's excited to see the castles, abbeys, and coastal hills-and maybe even catch a glimpse of Nessie herself-but Ava doesn't expect to meet Graham.
He's cute, sweet, and has the perfect Scottish accentbut does he like her as much as she likes him?
And if there is something of a mutual attraction there, Ava wonders, is it worth pursuing a crush when she'll be on the other side of the Atlantic in just two weeks?
