Book: Into Deepest Yellowstone

Nervous about sprawling development and threatened wild areas in Yellowstone Park, author and longtime O/B contributor Philip R. Knight decided to experience the wilderness firsthand with a walking circumnavigation of the entire ecosystem. Into Deepest Yellowstone (PublishAmerica, $25) chronicles the author’s 600-mile journey with his partner Alaina into the backcountry of our favorite national park. Reading his account of the beautiful, grueling, and exciting trek was motivating, and if you’re interested in more than what can be seen from the road, this is the read for you.
