Acclaimed nature writer Jack Turner visits one of America's greatest natural treasures: comprised of two national parks, three national wildlife refuges, parts of six national forests, and eleven wilderness areas, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is a vast and dense array of environments and geographies. In a series of essays he explores this wonderland, venturing on twelve separate trips in all seasons, in various manners of travel, and into encounters with all kinds of animals. More than just atravelogue, Turner-who has lived in Grand Teton for nearly two decades -acknowledges Yellowstone's history as ground zero for the conflicts between preservation and development. Turner transports the sights and sounds of this national treasure through his words and steps-providing a beautiful narrative of his personal travel through this precious region.
