David Quammen
A Celebration of ‘America’s Wild Heart’


Bestselling author David Quammen takes readers on a journey through America’s first national park—Yellowstone. Established in 1872, the park encompasses two million acres (bigger than Rhode Island and Delaware combined). Quammen illuminates the park’s storied past and breaks down its rich ecosystem, blending history, science, and research from the field. His book is as much a visual ode to nature as an intimate tour of one of the world’s most celebrated conservation areas. Yellowstone: A Journey Through America’s Wild Heart offers a portrait of extremes—hot and cold, violent and serene, lush and ravaged. From the iconic Old Faithful to misty mountain tops to iridescent springs, Quammen delves deep into the life and times of the park, both commemorating its beauty and highlighting its challenges.
