Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Yellowstone National Park is a wonderland. Located mostly in the state of Wyoming, it receives millions of travelers every year. This book explores the popular tourist attraction and explains many of its highlights. Foremost is, not surprisingly, Old Faithful Geyser. Every hour to an hour and a half, Old Faithful reliably blasts four to eight thousand gallons of boiling hot water into the air. Yellowstone has many other hot spring pools and scenic wonders such as the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Yellowstone Lake. The vast area of Yellowstone National Park is also full of history, wildlife, and adventure, each of which is described in this book. This is a "myreportlinks.com" book which means that readers can enter the provided password and access up-to-date Internet sites that provide additional information about Yellowstone National Park. There are many colorful photographs scattered throughout the book, and the many headings and captions are eye-catching and engaging. This book is part of the "America's National Parks" series.
