The Fourth of July sparks patriotism for many Americans. And, in honor of today's holiday, what could be more patriotic than America's National Parks?

Today, Audrey Peterman, the author of Legacy on the Land and a recognized National Park enthusiast, will be a guest on the second installment of our summer series on National Parks. She will discuss how she found the American identity in the National Parks, and how that has changed her life. She has visited 32 separate National Parks and 165 units in the National Park System. When she is not exploring the parks with her husband, she is inspiring others to visit them in order to discover their own connections to the American identity through the National Parks.
