Let this graphic novel be your time machine--experience history like never before! Our past is only the beginning with History Comics.

In this volume, The National Parks: Preserving America's Wild Places, turn back the clock to 1872, when Congress established Yellowstone National Park as an area of unspoiled beauty for the benefit and enjoyment of the people. Meet the visionaries, artists, and lovers of the American wilderness who fought against corruption and self-interest to carve out and protect these spaces for future generations. See for yourself how the idea of National Parks began, how they've changed, and how they continue to define America.

About the Author
Falynn Koch was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. She has an MFA in sequential art from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, and is a graduate of the International Culinary Center in New York City. She loves travel and exploring the outdoors with her husband and occasionally her dogs. She has visited forty-nine of America's national parks, with a goal to one day see them all. She also wants to one day see a moose (from a safe distance), which so far have eluded her, despite their size. Her other books from First Second include Science Comics: Bats, Science Comics: Plagues, Maker Comics: Bake Like a Pro!, and History Comics: The Wild Mustangs (with writer Chris Duffy).
