Are you interested in a comprehensive history of Pennsylvania's state parks system? From someone who was there? Then William C. Forrey's 1984 book covering the period from the system's inception until 1983 and its companion covering the period from 1984 through 2015 are just the ticket!
Bill's distinguished career with the Bureau of State Parks culminated in his service as the Director of the Bureau of State Parks under M.K. "Doc" Goddard so he was certainly in a unique position to recall how our current system was shaped and created.
