Yellowstone Treasures: The Traveler’s Companion to the National Park
Updated Sixth Edition (May 2020, reprinted 2022)
This book makes you the tour guide for your group! Janet Chapple shares plenty of history anecdotes and her tips to spot wildlife, catch geyser eruptions, stay safe, and escape the crowds. Mile-by-mile road logs document every approach to the park and every interior road. For this sixth edition, editor Beth Chapple and geologist Jo-Ann Sherwin revised the introduction, active geyser and hot spring descriptions, geology chapter, and more. A field guide to the plants and animals, a selected reading list, and a 21-page index round out this comprehensive book. Also available in three e-book formats.
