    The only book we needed.

    A comprehensive and informative guide to yellowstone and the four routes of entry to the park. This book had all the answers. Supplement only with yellowstone pamphlets and maps and some specific hiking info. Turned out to be a great guide.

    A really great book about a unique place

    Anyone planning a trip to Yellowstone NP should read this book. It is a unique book about a unique place. For the visitor to YNP, this book provides the equivalent of a highly knowledgeable tour guide. For those with a general interest in the geology, or recent history of YNP, it will be extremely beneficial.
