From the Foreword by Eric Blehm
“May the authors’ words inspire readers on their own journeys to better understand the nuances of this fascinating profession and to conduct their work as a labor of love; not a job, but rather a calling and a joy.
This solid interpretation of our natural and cultural heritage is essential to move us in ways that compel us to change the world.”
Eric Blehm is the bestselling author of Fearless, The Only Thing Worth Dying For, and Legend.
Hundreds of millions of people seek out opportunities for enjoyment, learning, and inspiration through visits to our national parks, historic sites, museums, zoos, aquariums, and other tourism destinations.
Yet few are aware of the behind-the-scenes efforts of interpretation to provide deeper understanding and enriched experience of these places.

It exposes readers to the art and science of interpretation and how its proper use can indeed change the world.
