©2004 Tim Cahill; (P)2004 Books on Tape
I found this book to be very repetitive especially with second part of the book being recycled material. The recycled bits were just thrown into this book without any consideration of deleting material already covered. There were a few interesting parts, but not enough to recommend this book to someone - or to listen to it again.
This was an enjoyable read, but a bit dry. The author did point out many great out a the way spots in the Park. A lot of the book was basic info that has been printed many times. Makes you wish that you lived close to Yellowstone to enjoy it more.
I was a little irritated to discover half way through that the second half of this book consisted of 'reworked' articles that were previously published in Outside magazine. If you haven't read these, then you'll enjoy Cahill's depictions of trips in Yellowstone. If you have, then expect to get only half a book. Maybe I didn't read the product description well enough, but this wasn't disclosed before buying...
