What is included with this book?


Although Yellowstone is our oldest, most iconic, and most popular national park, it is perhaps, in W. D. Wetherell's words, "America's least-known best-known place." Wetherell, arriving at the park on the eve of his fifty-fifth birthday, feels the need to examine where life's mileage has brought him. In the encounter that follows, a writer entering late middle age confronts not only a magnificent corner of the vast American landscape, but also the American experience itself. Detailed in the wise, humorous, and lyrical language that has long distinguished W. D. Wetherell's award-winning fiction, this introspective journey merges the fascinating story of Yellowstone's history and geography with the author's own storyof marriage and aging, of fatherhood, and of the solace to be found in the beauty of the natural world. Most of all, it's a loving tribute to Yellowstone in autumn, the season when the park and its glories are absolutely at their peak.
