Death in Yellowstone is an amazing book that documents most of the deaths that have occured in the park since its beginning. The book is divided into two parts: death by nature and death by man. As an employee of the Old Faithful Inn this past summer, I recommend this book for anyone who has visited the park or is going to do so in the future. The stories are both educating and frightening at the same time but offer valuable lessons about traveling in the park. It is amazing to me how some people could even think of walking around the thermal pools at night, go camping alone, try to tame bears or get too close to the canyon's edge!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reminders. 9 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is divided into two parts: Death by Nature (124 pages) and Death by Man (67 pages). I thought the "Death by Nature" section was the most entertaining and interesting. Although some incidents were brought on by people's stupidity, other incidents served as good learning experiences--things to watch out for when enjoying the outdoors. The author chronicles over 300 deaths which took place between 1839-1993.

This book details deaths in the park, from accidents in hot water to falls from thousands of feet. This book will definitely inhance your awareness of danger and pleasure in the park. Will keep you on the edge of your seat, and scare you to death at the same time. Very well written, and also documented with sources for further information. A must have for anyone who has ever been to Yellowstone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, educational, and entertaining. 27 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A fascinating book about all the people who have died in Yellowstone (excluding auto accidents and illness). It seems strange that a book about death would be fun to read, but I definitely enjoyed this one. It also gives some good examples of what NOT to do when in Yellowstone. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has been to Yellowstone or is interested in the park.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! A must read for park visitors! 29 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book on the way home from our family vacation in Yellowstone. It helped me understand the regulations and made me appreciate the wildness of the park. It is so well written; concise, factual yet very entertaining. I can't wait to read more of Whittlesey.
