5. Februar 2008 Spectacular National Parks
Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks captures the breathtaking landscape and wildlife of one of America’s most renowned regions. More than 275 photographs—from some of the country's best nature photographers—recreate the adventure and grandeur of this area that combines the world's greatest collection of geothermal features, some of the West's most spectacular mountains and its best wildlife viewing areas. This unique large-format book offers guided tours—in words and pictures—of Yellowstone and Grand Teton, with thirty-six pages of foldouts, each more than three feet wide, designed to illustrate the wide-open expanse of these national park gems. Yellowstone was set aside as America's first national park in 1872. Since then, interest in the park has grown dramatically and today, more than 3 million people visit the two parks annually. Grand Teton National Park, home of the majestic mountain range, was preserved as a national park in 1929. This book offers stunning photographs of every corner of the 2.2 million acres that make up these parks, including such treasures as Lake Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, and the world's most famous geyser, Old Faithful, as well as rainbow-colored geyser basins of the north Mammoth country, and herds of buffalo and elk on the wide plains of the Lamar Valley. Sit back and behold the beauty of the Grand Tetons at sunset, the breathtaking vistas over the Snake River, or the refreshing waterfalls off the Bechler River trail. Whether it’s boating on Jackson Lake or a hike around Grand Prismatic Spring that you desire, Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks takes you deep into the parks' many gorgeous landscapes in every season of the year.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Experiencing Yellostone and Grand teton National Parks 19. Januar 2009
Von Cam - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If I could have only one book about the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, I would choose "Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks." A striking, masterpiece of a book, its large format accommodates many panoramic photographs of outstanding compositional beauty and technical quality. The special features of five locations within Yellowstone, routes into Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Park are well documented with essays and photographs. No ordinary coffee-table book, " Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks" is exceptional for its substance. Well researched, the text is highly interesting and vividly written. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, are carefully selected to highlight, develop, and extend the written narrative. Of widely varying subject matter--vast landscapes, close-ups of thermal features, flora, and fauna among other aspects of the Ecosystem--photographs are remarkable for the number that are printed and for the rich documentation they provide. The significance of the Ecosystem for the relationship of humans and nature is made awesomely clear in this book. Photographs throughout the book make both the magnificent landscape and the presence of humans relating to the land immediate and tangible. This is a book for anyone who has seen Yellowstone or the Grand Teton National Parks and wants to re-experience the Parks in a deeper way. It is also a book for anyone who intends or hopes to experience the Parks and who wants to better understand their deep significance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Far more than a coffee-table book 23. Oktober 2009

When I ordered "Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks," I expected it to deliver superb photographs of park vistas, and it does. What really impressed me, however, is that the author went the second mile with terrific wildlife photos and with text that is well-written and well-researched. The text includes much historical background as well as commentary on the ecosystem by people who know what they are talking about.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stunning Photography 16. Oktober 2010
Von Tony Triolo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this book soon after returning home from a visit to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks. The book was prominently displayed in all the gift shops and hotels within the parks, but I didn't like the idea of having to cart this rather large book around and had no idea how I would pack it for the plane trip home. I guess I could have mailed it, but that would just have added to the fairly steep full-price the gift shops were already charging. I thought I might get a better price on Amazon and it would also solve my shipping problems. The online price was considerably less than retail and even better than I had hoped.

As I said, this book is big. It measures approximately 12x16 inches which makes the coffee table really the only place for it. It would really stick out on a bookshelf. The photographs inside are truly spectacular and need to be displayed in large landscape format. Many of the panoramic photos are folded over and once opened, extend well beyond the book's 12x16 inches. I am a photographer myself, so I have an appreciation for good photography. The images in this book are first-rate and would be proud to be author of any of them. The print quality is also excellent.

The book is well laid out with the text following a logical order documenting the history of the parks through to the present day. There are an abundance of maps, charts and other illustrations to compliment the narrative. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book 8. September 2011

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought 2 books after visiting Grand Teton and Yellowstone National parks.
I have given one as a present to some friends that came from Sweeden to visit those 2 parks with us.
Each time I look inside the book it is as if I am transported back to those 2 fabulous parks.
You can buy this book inside the park but the cost is around $42.00

The title of this book is fitting. Not only are the photos of the book wonderful and capture the many things offered by the parks, the book also provides wonderful information about the natural wonders.
