The latest book from Granite Peak Publications, Yellowstone Treasures: The Traveler’s Companion to the National Park, will be released on June 9, 2017. The updated fifth edition adds 65 new photos—many by Suzanne Cane, a Yellowstone enthusiast and co-translator of Yellowstone, Land of Wonders.
A photo contest last summer yielded more images. As before, the book features geology and history and provides charts of Yellowstone’s campgrounds and facilities, informative maps, a list of out-of-the-way hikes, and a plant and animal field guide.
In the four years since the fourth edition came out, the many changes in the park include new lodgings at Canyon Village and exhibits in honor of the 2016 National Park Service centennial. For 2017, author Janet Chapple updated the road logs and geyser and hot spring descriptions, particularly at Norris and Mammoth. She uses data from the Geyser Observation and Study Association and GeyserTimes.org to augment her personal observations from her frequent trips.
Yellowstone Treasures will be distributed by IPG and available via major wholesalers. For more information and a media kit, please visit http://www.yellowstonetreasures.com/.
