Last summer Granite Peak Publications released the latest version of the guidebook customers this fall are calling “excellent, detailed,” “very informative,” and “like having a park guide with you.” “It is the most comprehensive guide book to Yellowstone National Park ever written,” says Leslie Quinn, interpretive specialist at Xanterra Parks & Resorts. Author Janet Chapple explains, “I wrote the book for people who already care about Yellowstone, as well as for a generation of new visitors.”
The guidebook describes all the possibilities, without prescribing what visitors should do or see. What's different in the new book? The updated fourth edition boasts:
- Color tabs to indicate the six sections of the park
- A dozen new pictures
- Fully revised maps that show recent road changes
- Updated geological information to reflect current research on what’s under Yellowstone and how it works
- A new glossary of geological and other scientific terms
The comprehensive guidebook also comes as an e-book in EPUB, PDF, Nook, and Kindle formats.
Granite Peak Publications has just come out with a redesign of the companion website to the book, http://www.yellowstonetreasures.com, for improved smartphone or tablet viewing. Articles describe places to see, geyser eruptions to wait for and marvel at, short hikes to take, and tips on avoiding the millions of other visitors. The author posts her news and views about Yellowstone National Park and her Yellowstone projects on her blog, http://www.yellowstonetreasures.com/author-blog/. The website has a whole new look.
About the Author and Publisher: Montana native Janet Chapple’s association with Yellowstone goes back to very early childhood, when her parents worked at Old Faithful a few summers starting in 1939. In 2000, Janet named her publishing company after the highest mountain in Montana in honor of her grandfather Fred Inabnit, who led climbing expeditions in the early 1900s into the Beartooth Range, where Granite Peak is located. Janet recently cotranslated a Belgian travelogue entitled Yellowstone, Land of Wonders, published by University of Nebraska Press in May 2013.
