This handbook uses a regional approach to covering Wyoming, beginning with Cheyenne and Laramie in the Southeast and progressing through the Medicine Bow country, the Southwest, Central Wyoming, the Wind River country, Jackson Hole, the two great national parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton, and rugged eastern Wyoming. Each section covers the principal towns and attractions, along with information on recreation, accomodation, and dining. A general section discusses practicalities.
Pitcher's thoughtful narrative conveys a sense of why Wyoming might be different and interesting. It's a huge state with a small population and outsized terrain, lots of wildlife, and a sense that the western frontier isn't entirely gone. It has more museums than you might expect, more cattle than people, and a nice mixture of recreation opportunities, from skiing to climbing to fishing to hiking to dude ranches, and more. Moon's Wyoming Handbook is worth a read, even in used condition, and the state is worth a visit.
Moon is probably not as well known as other guidebook series such as Lonely Planet, Frommers, etc. but I have been consistently impressed by the quality of Moon guides--they have become my default option for North and Central America. I really hope they decide to update this guidebook, as it is an absolute gem. I see that there is a combined Montana and Wyoming guidebook that Moon put out in 2011 ... but it has only about 200 or so pages specifically on Wyoming. As a result, if you are concentrating your focus on Wyoming, I definitely recommend this 2006 Wyoming guide even though it's a bit older. Its attention to detail just can't be beat.

It maybe strange to write a review on a 10 year old guide book but it is still worth both reading and writing about it. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Kindle Customer
This book has a ton of great information. It was published in 2006 and because of that I was worried that the information would be out of date. That was not the case at all. Read morePublished on June 29, 2011 by mike
