I've been to Yellowstone 12 times, thought I knew the park pretty well till I read this book. Looking forward to going back and taking some of the hikes listed here. Great info, easy read. Highly recommend to anyone going to Yellowstone.

I got the Kindle edition (if only the rest of the reference tools had this option !). . . . The meat of the work is the Road Logs and Destinations giving a mile by mile, attraction by attraction passage de park. Some of the descriptions go on for more than a page often highlighting the geology or history of a location. . . . Natural and Human History is a fairly thorough overview of the Geology, a Chronology Since 1800 and Living Things: a Yellowstone Sampler. The later describes from microbes to bears and a ton of flowers to be encountered. Travel Tips is alphabetically arranged from accessibility to winter visits. There is also a a wonderful bibliography that is a gold mine. It led me to many of the older works I was totally unaware. Perhaps something a librarian would worry about, but the Index is awesome.

I can't imagine making the trip again without it!! Lots of great information that you can't possibly get by just visiting the park. The road log and detailed descriptions helped us plan what to see and how to see it. I would definitely recommend this guide for your trip of a lifetime!

Your book Yellowstone Treasures was with us constantly. Glenda would read the next milestone while I did the driving. Read more...

Just returned from my first real trip to Yellowstone (my first was a one day trip almost 40 years ago) and Janet's book was my bible for this trip. Read more...
