Summary

Yellowstone Countrytours the stunning region that includes Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, a mosaic of national forests, wilderness areas and wildlife refuges, countless waterfalls and hot springs, and two-thirds of the world's active geysers. A challenging ascent of 13,770-foot Grand Teton is detailed, as well as encounters with loggers, hunters, miners, and hikers. Yellowstone National Park, the oldest in the world (established in 1872), forms the core of this vast area. The book explores its fabled past, roams its idyllic backcountry, and celebrates its rich, vital and wild ecosystem.
