    Wouldn't leave home without it

    Planning our first trip to Yellowstone was a breeze with this handy guide. We discovered places that most people at the park were never aware of, or never knew how to find. Frommer pointed out hard to reach places or places that were not well marked - such as the Lookout at Old Faithful, Uncle Tom's Trail at the Canyon. We definitely will not plan another trip without consulting a Frommer's guide first.

    Not the best Yellowstone reference

    Compact and useful, but the author is overly snarky and provides minimal information on popular attractions he deems unworthy.

    Makes me want to go now!

    This compact book holds so much information. It is very easy to use, and it gives great travel tips. It includes all the information anyone could ever imagine needing to know before and during your trip. It not only hits the hilights, but goes in detailed descriptions of the not so travelled areas of the parks.

    By the auther

    Fireflame fell lazily backwards and Redtalon took his chance wisely and grasped the magical stone between his jaws and dashed happily off with it to his den. He heard Fireflame gliding toward his direction on sturdy, confident paws. Redtalon hid between a hollow tree's limbs. Fireflame raced past without noticing his target. Redtalon let out a huff of relief and padded excitedly back to his cozy, safe den. The end of REDTALON'S STONE
