Yellowstone Treasures, updated fifth edition (2017), won Silver in the Travel category from the Independent Book Publishers Association for excellence in book editing and design. The 30th annual Benjamin Franklin Award winners were announced on Friday, April 6, 2018 during a gala dinner ceremony at IBPA Publishing University, a two-day conference with over 30 educational and networking sessions held in Austin, Texas. “These are the best of the best,” said IBPA CEO Angela Bole. “This is important because in the end it’s not just about publishing; it’s about publishing well. Becoming an IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award™ winner showcases a publisher’s commitment to professional standards and high-quality book content and production.”
In addition, in March 2018 the guidebook was recognized as a finalist in the 20th annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.
