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.

A bit of a rip-off, but at least HALF enjoyable

I was a little irritated to discover half way through that the second half of this book consisted of 'reworked' articles that were previously published in Outside magazine. If you haven't read these, then you'll enjoy Cahill's depictions of trips in Yellowstone. If you have, then expect to get only half a book. Maybe I didn't read the product description well enough, but this wasn't disclosed before buying...

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.
