If you plan a trip to see firsthand the glories of Yellowstone National Park, Pomegranate's Yellowstone Handbook may be an essential addition to your suitcase, backpack, or car's glove compartment. The second in Susan and Phil Frank's ultimately usable "insider's guides" to America's parks, the book is organized in a question-and-answer format that answers such commonly-posed queries as: ""Help! We only have one day to visit--what should we see and do?", "We really want to see wildlife--any suggestions?", "Can you recommend a nice, easy day hike" (or, for the more adventurous: What are some great butt-kicking hikes?). Livened by the entertaining work of cartoonist Phil Frank, a "quick reference" section at the book's conclusion gives park rules, historical background, a list of licensed tour operators, campers' checklists, an area telephone directory, and more.
Paperbound book, 240 pages, original cartoon on almost every page, size: 5 5/8 x 8 5/8".
