A History of Nashville's Warner Parks is a story of Percy Warner Park's and Edwin Warner Park's 3,200-plus acres from 500,000,000 years ago to the present. The transformation of the land is not, however, one simple story with a happy ending, but a tapestry of many stories of conflict and cooperation over millennia culminating in an irreplaceable community asset. The all-encompassing volume addresses the geologic, topographical, natural, social, cultural, military, business, governmental, environmental, and philanthropic histories of the area.

Sixteen authors tell the stories in 53 short, engaging chapters (copiously illustrated with approximately 175 maps, photographs, illustrations, artifacts, and reproductions of nationally known artists' oils, watercolors, and drawings) wherein readers can learn chronologically how the beloved parks (listed in the National Register of Historic Places) were, roughly over the past century, acquired, forged, enjoyed, neglected, and resurrected, ultimately to be cherished, expanded, and protected. Current maps, a wide-ranging timeline, and a species list with over 1,100 species are key elements in the appendix.

Edited and written in part by Nashville author F. Lynne Bachleda. Design by Gary Gore and page layouts & production by Bruce Gore of Gore Studio, Inc.
