Go Outside and Come Back Better is nature’s brochure, an inspirational travel essay woven through a landscape photography collection. Readers will discover nature’s power to teach, inspire, and improve lives. With 160 color photos from parks in all 50 U.S. states, Go Outside combines America’s beautiful scenery with down-to-earth insight into how everyone—not just adventurers—can benefit from spending time in nature. Sprinkled with wisdom from naturalist John Muir, the book provides an uplifting look at life and the outdoors.

“Reviewer’s Choice. Go Outside and Come Back Better is a vibrant tour of 120 parks in all 50 of America’s states. The text is sparse but prompts the reader to contemplate the beautiful images and the rejuvenating powers of nature. Although Go Outside and Come Back Better enthusiastically encourages the reader to visit America’s parks in person, its stunning imagery is certainly the next best thing to an immediate vacation, and highly recommended especially for armchair travelers!”—Midwest Book Review

“Inspiring readers to explore the outdoors, this stunning photo journal offers a fresh perspective on the pleasures of nature. Go Outside and Come Back Better doesn’t try to be comprehensive. You won’t find an A-Z listing of national parks in these pages. Instead, [Ron Lizzi] offers a sampler of sorts, with images and words to pique your interest in nature and show how your life might improve by spending more time there.”—ForeWord Reviews

“To appreciate nature, you need to spend time with it. We tend to forget how remarkably beautiful it can be. Ron Lizzi has captured this beauty as well as anyone in his stunning photography and unique writing.”—Jim Cantore, TV meteorologist for The Weather Channel

Go Outside and Come Back Better is a tribute to the power our wild places have to inspire and renew us. As Americans, we share some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth in our public lands. Ron Lizzi does a wonderful job of encouraging all of us to enjoy these wild places and the countless benefits they provide.”—Jamie Williams, President, The Wilderness Society

Go Outside and Come Back Better reminds us of nature’s great benefits to health and spirit. America’s parks provide unforgettable experiences (‘matterdays’) that Ron Lizzi captures in his photos and writing.”—Fran P. Mainella, 16th director of the National Park Service
