My Thoughts-

My son has always been interested in Yellowstone, so I thought this book would be a perfect book for us to study before we go on our trip.  I was not disappointed in this book and neither was my family.  We enjoyed reading the text and looking at the pictures.  It was refreshing to read a guidebook that discussed creation and not evolution.  It was also interesting reading about how some science theories don’t work when compared to creation, like carbon dating.

One of the best features of this book was all of the panoramic photos with labels of the important locations in each photo.  The descriptions describing each area of the parks was also excellent.  I really felt that we could learn everything we needed to about Yellowstone from this book.  We are now armed with knowledge about what we can see and do on our journey.

I highly recommend this book to everyone of all ages, whether it is for enjoyment, science class, or history.
