Description

Nestled along the Illinois River, Starved Rock State Park is a favorite destination no matter the season—nearly 2.5 million people visit each year. This National Historic Landmark boasts a landscape filled with tall bluffs, elegant trees, and wildflower-adorned hills, perfect for the adventurer inside us all.


In Starved Rock State Park: An Illinois Treasure, photographers Lee Mandrell and DeeDee Niederhouse-Mandrell showcase the beauty and grandeur of this Illinois state park. With photos of twisting forest trails, plunging canyons, and lakes veiled in mist, they uncover this land piece by piece. Hike to take in the view at Lover's Leap Overlook or relish the waterfalls that come roaring out from canyons with names like "Wildcat" and "St. Louis." Come explore this park thriving with life. From hawks soaring across crisp blue skies and snakes slinking over bramble to folksy log cabins and meadows of black-eyed Susans, there is a little something for everyone.


With 120 high-quality color photos and an appreciation of the finer details in life, Starved Rock State Park will transport you to a land rich with history and wonder.

FOREWORD
Thoughts of Illinois usually drum up visions of fields of corn as far as the eye can see, or the bustling city sidewalks and streets of Chicago-but there is a special place along the Illinois River that can transport the visitor to another world.
