This updated edition of a decade-old book examines the role of women in the National Park Service, from Yellowstone explorers of the late 1800s to present-day park founders and advocates. Women now fill one-quarter of park superintendent jobs, up from 16 percent 10 years ago — but the words "first woman to serve as" are not yet a phrase of the past.
