Reviews

"Vaughn and Cortner smartly focus our attention towards the relatively unknown and complex story of the philanthropic partnerships pursued by the National Park Service. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the complex and challenging aspects of the often lauded relationships between the Park Service and its friends groups and coooperating associations. The authors are especially apt at moving the reader between the broader conceptual pieces of partnerships with a federal agency and the specific details of individual partnerships - all the while helping us truly appreciate the complexity of this special arrangement in support of our national treasures." Crystal Fortwangler, Assistant Professor, Sustainability and Environmental Anthropology, Chatham University, USA
