Every year millions of Americans visit national parks and monuments, state and municipal parks, battlefield areas, historic houses, and museums. By means of guided tours, exhibits, and signs, visitors to these areas receive a very special kind of education through their interpretation of informative materials.

For over thirty-five years, Interpreting Our Heritage has been a source book for those who are responsible for and who respond to such interpretive materials. Whether the problem is to make a prehistoric site come to life or to explain the geological theory behind a particular rock formation, Freeman Tilden provides helpful principles to follow. For anyone interested in our natural and man-made heritage, this book offers guidance for exploring educational and recreational resources.
