Summary

After living and working for three winters in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, Rick and his wife, Mary, long to go deeper into Yellowstone. Finally, they trust Yellowstone's pull, leave the security of their Oregon life, and relocate to Gardiner, just outside the park's north gate. Their year of immersion begins.  

Deep into Yellowstone takes you along as Rick and Mary cross-country ski, hike, bicycle, canoe, and backpack through four seasons of Yellowstone's grandeur.   

Along the way, Rick explains important controversies: the outrage over the removal of grizzlies from the endangered species list; the dispute over hunting park wolves along Yellowstone's border; the debate about whether wolves help or harm the ecosystem and the economy; the fight to stop the slaughter of park bison; the overuse of the park; and their community's battle to prevent gold mining right on the park's border.  

If you want to visit, learn about, or protect our nation's first national park, this audiobook is for you. Deep into Yellowstone will give you a stronger love for the park's grandeur, a deeper knowledge of the controversies threatening the park, and a clearer picture of how to protect Yellowstone.

WAY too political

The title details mention that the author works through controversies in YNP as he writes about the park. From my vantage point this book was 15% sharing about the park and 85% conservation politics. At one point he mentions going to a meeting to understand the other side’s perspective, but shares absolutely nothing about that viewpoint. I’m traveling to YNP in one week and I was excited about hearing from an insider places to go and things to see that aren’t overwhelmingly touristy. I didn’t learn that but I did learn that the reintroduction of wolves saved the planet and all that is good about life. The author is a pantheist; I wish I had my membership credit back.

Like Being in Deep Snow

Slogging onward when I adore the subject? Unusual pronunciation is distracting. No more, please!

excellent book about the Yellowstone ecosystem.

A great book from a preservationist point of view. I'll read another book by this author.
