Reviews for Yellowstone National Park : Adventure, Explore, Discover

Booklist Reviews 2008 October #2
"Yellowstone, America's first national park, holds the same allure for visitors today as it did for the early explorers in the 1870s. Readers learn about the evolution, history, early inhabitants, and wildlife of the park. Additionally, they will gain a deeper understanding of the ecological issues that have plagued and still plague those who manage the park. The last chapter explores the major attractions of Yellowstone--where to stay, where to eat, and how to travel through the park to best appreciate its beauty. As part of the imprint, this book in the America's National Parks series includes a wealth of vetted Web sites that provide additional resources about the park. At times the screen-captures of the Web sites can seem a little intrusive, but the book's strong points make it a fine option for students tasked to research Yellowstone, and especially for those who may be planning a visit in the near future. A glossary, chapter notes, and suggestions for further reading are appended." Copyright 2008 Booklist Reviews.
