Editorial Reviews

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

“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.”
Jackson Hole News & Guide/Daily - Todd Wilkinson
“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.”
High Country News
“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.”
Booklist - Susan Gooden
“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
Alaska Airlines Mag - Katya Slater-Szirom
“Whether you’re planning a visit or looking for a gift for a park enthusiast, this atlas has something for everyone.”
Portland Oregonian - Terry Richard
“The atlas touches on just about anything one could want to know about Yellowstone, from how the geysers work to where the bears are. It will keep anyone who loves maps, charts and data tables turning pages long into the night.”
Outside Bozeman Magazine - Dave Reuss
“If there’s something you want to know about Yellowstone, this is the place to look . . . the concentration and quality of information in this book is unmatched, and is a must-have for Yellowstone lovers everywhere.”
Choice - T. Dolence
“Given the national nature of Yellowstone and the outstanding quality of this atlas, all academic libraries should acquire it.”
Crown of the Continent and Greater Yellowstone Magazine - Rick Graetz
"What makes this book invaluable is the writing. Someone (or in this case, “somemany”) sat down and put all sorts of fascinating, important, and just plain interesting historical, geographical, and scientific information into 'public speak.'"
Library Journal
In 1871, a U.S. Geological Survey team including artist Thomas Moran and photographer William Jackson explored the sources of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. The appearance of their works in “The Wonders of the West” for Scribner’s Monthly in February 1872 prompted Congress and President Grant to create the first national park in the United States in this unique area of 2.2 million acres. A class project in advanced cartography at the University of Oregon grew exponentially to include a veritable army of cartographers who have created these 500 maps and accompanying text that explain the geographic setting, human and physical geography, and even the wildlife of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park.
