The Gifts of Interpretation: Fifteen Guiding Principles for Interpreting Nature and Culture by Larry Beck and Ted Cable
“This book is written for a broad audience. Students and educators may find it valuable as a supplement to traditional, more comprehensive interpretive textbooks. The book should also be useful to field interpreters and managers at
parks, forests, wildlife refuges, museums, zoos, aquariums, historic areas, nature centers, and other tourism sites.
“Finally, this book is meant to guide the general reader who wants to explore and learn more about our cultural and natural legacy. For those who enjoy visiting places that commemorate our heritage, an understanding of interpretation
offers the means for evaluating interpretive services and interpreting resources personally. We hope all readers find our treatment of an interpretive philosophy useful in their own lives.”
