Lost in My Own Backyard: A Walk in Yellowstone National Park
Tim Cahill

This slender book is a charm to read. The individual stories are articles from Outdoor Magazine that have been reworked to fit together better in a book format. They present a viewpoint of Yellowstone that turns the park into our nation's backyard except that it is treated with respect throughout the book. We read this book to get us in the spirit for our own grand Yellowstone adventure; while not a typical trail guidebook, it performed admirably as it helped us get acclimatized to a more complete set of adventures than our family might otherwise attempt. I'd recommend this book without reservation as an exemplar of the way to enjoy our nation's national parks. This book was a finalist for one of the Banff Mountain Book Awards.
