As shown in The Story Behind the Scenery's masterful photography, there are few more impressive manifestations of the power and mystery of the earth than Yellowstone. Here, the hidden fires within the earth have expressed themselves through the ages to celebrate some of the most diverse and dramatic landscapes ever assembled in any one place.
Authors National Park Service career professionals Roger and Carol Shively Anderson bring their years of interpretive experience at Yellowstone to chronical the many faces of the park, it's nuances and extremes in this beautiful, lavishly illustrated book.
