"Eminent naturalist and wildlife advocate Rick Lamplugh draws from a deep personal wellspring of experience and knowledge to take readers into Yellowstone’s wild heart." Cristina Eisenberg, PhD, Chief Scientist, Earthwatch Institute 

"Lamplugh is a word artist; Yellowstone is his palette." Julianne Baker, Yellowstone Instructor 

"A touch of Bill Bryson's whimsy, a dose of Edward Abbey's insight, and the story-telling charm of John McPhee." John Gillespie, Geologist

After living and working for three winters in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, Rick and his wife Mary trust Yellowstone's pull, leave the security of their Oregon roots and relocate to Gardiner, at the park's north gate. Deep into Yellowstone takes you along as Rick and Mary cross-country ski, hike, bicycle, and backpack through four seasons of Yellowstone's grandeur. 
Along the way, Rick explains important controversies: the fight to stop the slaughter of park bison; the truth about the overuse of Yellowstone; the battle to prevent gold mining right on Yellowstone's border; the dispute over hunting park wolves that follow their prey outside the park; the debate about whether wolves help or harm the ecosystem and the local economy; and the outrage over the removal of grizzlies from the endangered species list. 

If you want to visit, learn about, or protect our nation's first national park, Deep into Yellowstone is for you.
