More About the Author

Born in Atlanta, Georgia as the middle son of two teachers, Don Pitcher grew up all over the East Coast, from Florida to Maine. He moved west for college, receiving a masters degree in fire ecology from the University of California Berkeley. A love of nature pulled him north to Alaska, and an aversion to office work kept him outside for the next 15 years, conducting ecological research, building backcountry trails, working as a wilderness ranger, mapping grizzly habitat, and operating salmon weirs. He went on to write or photograph a dozen guidebooks for Avalon Travel, DK Publishing, Sasquatch Books, Heyday Books, and Fodor's. He also contributes to Triporati and other websites, and is a professional wedding photographer. Don Pitcher's photos have appeared in a multitude of publications and advertisements, and his prints are sold in many Alaska and Washington galleries. He lives in Homer, Alaska with his wife, Karen Shemet, and their children, Aziza and Rio.

Format: Paperback
Wyoming is a magical state - wild, wide open, lonely, and full of wonders - and this book provides the most thorough treatment of all the many things available for adventurers in this unique state. From Yellowtone and Grand Teton National Parks to the wild Wind River and Medicine Bow Mountains, the lonely Red Desert, the Cowboy Country, the lovely Star Valley, and the Native American sites of the North-East, it covers the state with the sort of familiarity and appreciation that is rare in most commercially-oriented guidebooks. As a guidebook author myself, I'd rate it among the finest I've ever used.

Moon Publications has another great book. Everything you need to know about traveling to Wyoming. I have used several of there books on different travel locations and they have all been excellent. The detail about the locations is very helpful, from places to eat and stay to points of interest and even directions as well as the local culture. I highly reccomend there travel books.

After previewing and reading other reviews of the many travel guides available on Amazon, I chose the Moon series for my trip. This book is full of detailed information, and covers even the remotest aspects of the state. The information was up-to-date and accurate. Highly recommend!

Format: Paperback
This 2006 Moon Handbook for Wyoming is a bit of a throw-back against the current trend in tourist guides towards visually intense graphic displays mixing pictures, maps, diagrams, and very concise bits of information. Author Don Pitcher's exploration of the great state of Wyoming is for visitors who want to read something about a new place. The handbook's over 700 pages are mostly narrative, although there is a reasonable helping of maps and photographs.

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.

Wyoming might be the USA's least populous state, but it is easily one of the most beautiful. This Moon guidebook does Wyoming justice, with approximately 750 pages full of great information and insights. Despite its size, this guide is remarkably easily to use and Don Pitcher's writing style is both informative and honestly fun to read. We moved to the southeast corner of Wyoming a couple of years ago and this guide has been our bible for our explorations of this state. Although this guide is 6 years old, we have not encountered any difficulties using it--the biggest caveat would be that, given its age, eating and sleeping options are not very up-to-date (but this is a problem easily remedied using TripAdvisor and other similar websites). Otherwise, the detail is honestly amazing--easily more thorough than many guidebooks I've used for entire countries let alone a single state.

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.
