The Atlas of Yellowstone is a fitting tribute to this national park and its surrounding region, a compelling visual guide to the area's rich diversity and singular beauty. Highlighting topics from art to wolves, American Indians to the Yellowstone volcano, and geysers to population, the well-illustrated pages portray the historic and modern forces that have shaped Yellowstone. Equal parts reference and travel guide, the Atlas of Yellowstone is an unsurpassed resource that is accessible to all audiences, especially tourists, residents of the region, students, resource managers, and scholars."
