What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"A must have for fans of Yellowstone National Park!"—The Guardian

"A great resource, one you can either sit down with to explore one facet of this intriguing region at a time, or use to find an answer to a question about Yellowstone."—National Parks Traveler

"I learned more about the forces shaping America's first national park and its sister preserve, Grand Teton National Park, in this single book than I have from any other reference guide in recent years."—Jackson Hole News & Guide/Daily

"This thoroughly researched volume is especially suited for academics and historians, but would be equally at home in the library of anyone who wants to research the depths of America's oldest national park."—High Country News

"A visually stunning and readable reference . . . More than 500 maps, photos—including aerial and satellite imagery—and charts make this necessary for any collection in the West, and most academic and public libraries will want a copy, too." STARRED REVIEW—Booklist
