This Hot Springs National Park book supplies the reader with a comprehensive history of one of our nation's oldest treasures. Did you know it was one of the first areas set aside as a federal land reservation in 1832—predating the first national park at Yellowstone by 40 years? In 1921, it was officially designated a national park. Physically the smallest of the 59 US national parks today, Hot Springs measures just larger than 5,500 acres. Its 47 on-site springs produce more than 700,000 gallons of thermal water per day.
