Overview: Implied Main Idea Banff National Park is one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. In Banff National Park you will find the majesty of mountains, the comfort of hot springs, and the chilly splendor of glaciers. So much beauty is readily apparent to the eye, but there is so much more that is beyond our gaze. Does that mean it is not there? Hardly! All we must do to know there is more to see is to notice the moose’s heavy print in the grass, or wait for the morning fog to lift and reveal snow-capped mountaintops. In a similar way, an author sometimes leaves the main idea of a reading passage beyond our gaze, but presents several details that suggest its existence. When the main idea or central point is not stated directly, it is called an implied main idea or implied central point.
