America's National Parks: Their Principles, Purposes, and Prospects
Sax, Joseph L.
Natural History, 85, 8, 57-87, Oct 76
Describes the history of National Parks and the controversy over their use. Emphasizing the lack of definitive legislation, Frederick Law Olmsted's original philosophy for establishing national parks is proposed for defining the role of parks today. Concludes that activities not directly enhancing nature (e.g., ski runs) are not appropriate in the parks. (SL)
