Book: Yellowstone

Delve deep into Yellowstone’s wild with David Peterson’s stunning photo book, Yellowstone: Near, Far & Wild (Farcountry Press, $20). From aerial shots of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to close-ups of hot-spring microbiota, Peterson’s images display the Park’s many moods. Depicting not only playful bears pawing at dragonflies, but also ominous skeletons in open fields that show us the harsh realities of predator-prey relationships, this book will remind you just how impressive Yellowstone is and why we work so hard to preserve it. It’s a must-have for the coffee table.
