Everyone has at least one passion. One of my passions is waterfalls, and I have written and composed this book that reviews my personal journeys to 100 waterfalls in 26 states. The waterfalls are grouped by type of waterfall and separated into eight chapters. Thunderous waters, bridal veil falls and mossy greens are a few examples of how waterfalls in different regions of the United States can have similar qualities. Rather than being a regional guidebook explaining how to get to a waterfall, this book is national in scope and describes the experience of visiting each waterfall, from the parking lot to the point around the bend where one first hears rushing water. The United States of America is a large country, and it is difficult to view in its entirety without either significant time for a road trip or access to flight. However, over time, individuals and families will have opportunities to visit different parts of the USA, often seeing our wonderful National and State Parks on a vacation or on a business trip. During those times there will be opportunities to view some of America's great waterfalls. The development of the book has been an organic process over a 15 year time span through my visitation and enjoyment of numerous parks.
