    Made in USA.

    From the publisher:
    The Antiquities Act of 1906 gave the president authority to establish national monuments to protect natural and historically significant areas in the USA. Theodore Roosevelt designated the first monument, Devils Tower, and established the long-standing tradition. Many of the monuments contain ancient ruins, pictographs and petroglyphs that are still in good condition. Many previously designated monuments have since become national parks, changed federal status or been transferred to state control.

    Nearly half of current U.S. national parks began as national monuments. Currently, 22 national monuments—including Bears Ears, Golden Butte and Giant Sequoia—are under review and may be stripped of their protected status. This guide can help readers understand what may be lost to development.
