Book description

Covering everything there is to know about the world’s first and most diverse national park, the fifth edition of this best-selling guide to Yellowstone boasts more facts, anecdotes, history, and travel tips than ever before. Mile-by-mile road logs document every approach to the park and every interior road. Through easy-to-understand explanations and diagrams, readers will learn of Yellowstone’s campgrounds and facilities, geyser basins and the frequency of the geysers, out-of-the-way hikes, and flora and fauna. The guidebook gives you all the possibilities, without prescribing for you what you should do or see.


  • Recommended short hikes and walking tours of the geyser basins
  • Travel tips, including what weather to expect
  • Over 200 pictures, both historical and recent
