What a wonderful book 5+

Would you consider the audio edition of Dangerous Beauty to be better than the print version?

The audio version of the book inflects emotion to the stories which a text based book cannot

What other book might you compare Dangerous Beauty to and why?

It is a group of stories about the Yellowstone area as seen through the eyes of a wildlife photographer . So books that cover that are not all that common. Some might be John Muirs books, or All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot and his love of animals and their personalities

Which character – as performed by Eric Martin – was your favorite?

Old scarface. It was touching about a Grizzly that was aging and having a difficult time getting about. We can all relate to that sooner or later

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The other visitors and residents of Yellowstone NP

Any additional comments?

A wonderful book I really enjoyed. Animals have personalities and they were captured very well in this book. A must if your visiting the park or any large wildlife park to understand the residents better.

If I could have given 6 stars for story I would have. If you love animals, the outdoors are a photographer , hiker its a joy to listen to the stories.

I was given this book to review. The opinions are my own and honest; what I like or don't like are my true feelings

The stories of life in Yellowstone National Park. The personalities of the bears and other animals, the interaction of Nature, Wildlife, the Park Service and visitors. Makes me want to be there too!

The first story of Scarface, then the discovery of familial connections!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me appreciate our National Parks, and how lucky we are to have them. And our obligation to preserve them for generations to come.

Any additional comments?
