More About the Author

Bradley Mayhew was born in Sevenoaks, Kent in 1970 and currently lives in Yellowstone County, Montana. A degree in Oriental Studies (Chinese) at Oxford University kickstarted 20 years of independent travel in the remoter corners of Asia and a career writing guidebooks. With his classmate, he wrote the Odyssey Guide to Uzbekistan, the first guidebook to the country, in 1995. He has since writted over 25 guides for Lonely Planet, specialising in Central Asia, Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, China and Yellowstone National Park.

In the course of his research trips he's been arrested in the Tajikistan Pamirs, forced to make a self-criticism in Tibet, slept in a cupboard in Nicaragua and spent way too much time eating mutton kebabs across inner Asia. Bradley has also written for Insight guides and Rough Guides and has lectured on Central Asia to the Royal Geographical Society. He was recently seen retracing the route of Marco Polo for a five-hour German TV documentary (Arte/SWR).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Guide 16 Jun 2012
By Niki Collins-queen, Author TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Too bad I did not have a copy of Lonely Planet's "Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks" by Bradley Mayhew and Carolyn McCarthy when my husband and I visited a few years ago. I loved the color pictures and descriptions of the top 20 best places to visit in Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Parks. Highlights include: Wildlife-spotting in the Lamar Valley. Because the valley is home to the densest collection of animals it's also known as the Serengeti of North America. Old Faithful and Upper Geyser Basin, The Teton's Alpine lakes, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Grand Prismatic Spring, the largest, deepest and most beautiful spring in the park. (Best seen from above), Bechler Basin's spectacular collection of waterfalls, Mammoth Terraces and Norris Geyser Basin that has the hottest, most active and tallest geyser in the park.
To make planning a trip simpler the book has included great maps and itineraries and routes to suite every time-frame. To help understand Yellowstone and the Grand Teton's there are chapters about best hikes, places to eat and stay and when to go. Also sections about the history, geology, wildlife, conservation, parks today, a survival guide, transportation, health, safety, clothing and equipment.
I found the maps, charts and comprehensive planning tools easy-to-use. The sections about the month by month activities and the travel with children and pets are also helpful.
Bradley Mayhew's quote sums up my feelings, "There 's nowhere in the world quite like Greater Yellowstone. From its raging geysers to howling wolf packs, the land stands alone as one last pocket of a wild, primeval America."

By John P. Jones III TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is another one of their superlative guides. It is light on pictures of the National Parks (but you've seen them elsewhere, and intend to take your own anyhow, right?), but packed full of useful information. The book is in a convenient 7 ¾" by 5" format that will easily fit in the side pocket of your "cargo" pants; an indispensable companion as you hike.

The guide commences with the top 20 experiences in the area, some of which you probably had not envisioned (like the Museum of the Rockies, in nearby Bozeman, MT). This is followed by the nitty-gritty details in "need to know" sections: dates, weather, accommodations, pricing, et. al. In terms of activities, there are sections on hiking, cycling, horseback riding, rafting, canoeing, fishing, and for the winter, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. There are also sections on how to travel with children and pets.

So many hikes, so little time! There are numerous detailed descriptions of more hikes than one can do in a full season, divided into day and overnight hikes. There are also detailed descriptions of all the "sights" one can reach via an automobile. Numerous useful maps, appropriately placed throughout the book, are provided. The other activities are also covered, perhaps in lesser detail. Each national park in the title is covered separately, in the same format sequence. There are also sections on the towns near the parks, such as Jackson Hole.

Towards the end of the guide there is a 30 page section on the role and history of our national parks. "Loved to Death" is an apt subtitle. Fittingly, the authors cite Edward Abbey's expression, "industrial tourism," since the parks receive 30,000 or so visitors on peak days. It does enhance the appeal of the "off season.

5.0 out of 5 stars As always excellent 19 Feb 2014
By Kirbs
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book, which shows so many additional places to visit - would not be without this type of book when planning a trip.
You obviously have to work at it, but it is sectioned so well that you only need to read the area's that you are visiting.
Delivery was very quick.
