About the Author

Janet Chapple is a Montana native whose parents once worked at Old Faithful Inn, the historic lodge in Yellowstone Park. She has memories of wonderful times in Yellowstone Park with her sister Joan: waiting for geysers to erupt, visiting with rangers, attending slide shows and sing-alongs in the amphitheater, playing hide-and-seek in the inn, and watching as their father assigned passengers to the big yellow tour buses. Janet attended Stanford University, University of Washington, University of Southern California, and Indiana University. She is the author of five editions of Yellowstone Treasures and the cotranslator into English of Yellowstone, Land of Wonders, an 1883 travelog to and through Yellowstone by Belgian travel writer Jules Leclercq. Foreword Magazine has described her as “”Yellowstone Institute student, professional cellist, and geyser geek.”
