Atlas of Yellowstone shows that good things happen when top-notch cartography, tasteful design, solid research, and compelling geography come together. The atlas will delight professional and armchair readers alike. Its treasure trove of maps explore wide-ranging topics—from geology to wildlife to people and the land. Better still, these well-orchestrated elements reveal a bigger idea: the place we call the Greater Yellowstone.” —Tom Patterson, former president, North American Cartographic Information Society

“An extremely attractive, first-rate volume that is sure to become a fundamental resource for scholars and anyone who loves Yellowstone.”—Richard Marston, Kansas State University

"While much has been written on the Yellowstone region, nothing compares to this volume in scope or presentation. This will become the standard reference and starting point for anyone interested in the history of Yellowstone."—Anthony Barnosky, author of Heatstroke: Nature in an Age of Global Warming
