OK for Reference - Not Good on the Road
By Jay Sanderson
This is a great guide, but is not recommended for reading while riding or driving. It is better used as a reference or field guide, though there are not a lot of accurate pictures within the description of the flora and fauna of the Yellowstone eco-system. The book also goes outside of the actual park boundaries and deals with all of the history, environmental, ecological, wildlife, and plant aspects of the eco-system of the part, which extends to areas outside of the park. The book contains no maps or reference information on where to find particular aspects of the park, so you will need to refer to warnings on maps and trails if you venture into the park interior and off of the road.

Transaction was smooth. Seller's cool. Book was recommended reading for future trip I'm taking. I've read parts of it & scanned most of it. I'd give it a C. It's okay, but I probably wouldn't buy again, knowing what I know now.
