Overview

Covering everything there is to know about the world's first and most diverse national park, this fourth edition of the bestselling guide to Yellowstone boasts more facts, anecdotes, history, and travel tips than ever before. Mile-by-mile road logs document every approach to the park and every interior road. Through easy-to-understand explanations and diagrams, readers will learn of Yellowstone's campgrounds and facilities, geyser basins and the frequency of the geysers, out-of-the-way hikes, and flora and fauna. Updates to this edition include tinted tabs to indicate the six different regions of the park and their approach roads, in addition to the tabs in previous editions for the geological, historical, and natural history sections; up-to-date scientific information to reflect recent research, including two new geological diagrams; highlighted historic items in the road logs; a dozen new pictures; and fully revised maps to show recent road changes and other details. A 20-page index rounds out this indispensable addition to any travel library.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
"[H]eftier than many a travel guide to an entire country...her advice is balanced...[answers] science questions in layman's terms."
Minneapolis Star-Tribune
Tackles the park with a broad brush and is ideal for those making the ritual family vacation out West . . . [D]esigned for those traveling by car, with the pages following the roadways in and near the park. The book covers geology, wildlife, and history while giving practical advice.
The Oregonian
For most readers, Janet Chapple's new 384-page guide to the park may be the only one they ever need . . . a knowledgeable treatise on one of America's most-loved natural travel destinations.
Billings Gazette
Nicely organized and flows well from tips to anecdotes to blurbs on accommodations . . . The book is rich with detail, from the tiny insects to the crashing waterfalls, all of which play a part in the pastiche that makes the park so attractive to Chapple-and millions of others

Love Yellowstone National Park? So does author Janet Chapple, whose parents worked at the Old Faithful Inn. Her new book . . . an updated third edition, [is] a must-have for women who want to see the most and best of this 3,468-square-mile national keepsake.
