Without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite projects was working on this national parks guide to one of the most beautiful corners of the globe. Excited to finally see it in print – and just in time for the NPS centennial!

If you’ve yet to be inducted into the Utah fan club, it won’t take much: this is a state where labyrinthine canyons, red-rock spires, moonlit desert arches and slickrock playgrounds reign. It doesn’t matter if you’re a couch potato or hardcore thrill-seeker equipped with a GoPro. Grab a bike, rope or paddle and get out there and have fun!

That the, ahem, Mongolian death worm allegedly kills its prey with electric shocks that shoot out of its eyes? This was one editing project where I constantly had at least one child looking over my shoulder, and the entire family is very excited to now see it in print!

If you’ve got a child who loves learning about the world (or is perhaps studying for an upcoming Geo Bee), grab a copy and read up on all those fascinating facts about our planet’s 196 countries.
