Publisher's Summary

From the author of such travel adventure classics as Jaguars Ripped My Flesh and Road Fever, comes an informative and entertaining travelogue through one of America's favorite destinations: Yellowstone National Park. On his several-hundred-mile trek across the wilderness, the author explores such natural wonders as glaciers and geysers, muses about the microbiology of thermal pools, and witnesses moonbows arcing across waterfalls at midnight. Inevitably, he runs into Yellowstone's various inhabitants, including a grizzly bear with a footprint "about the size of a pizza", and others he had previously seen only on television.

Too repetitive

I found this book to be very repetitive especially with second part of the book being recycled material. The recycled bits were just thrown into this book without any consideration of deleting material already covered. There were a few interesting parts, but not enough to recommend this book to someone - or to listen to it again.

A Big Backyard

This was an enjoyable read, but a bit dry. The author did point out many great out a the way spots in the Park. A lot of the book was basic info that has been printed many times. Makes you wish that you lived close to Yellowstone to enjoy it more.
