Booksigning and Presentation: the Atlas of Yellowstone

Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center Auditorium
Jackson, Wyoming – Featuring more than 500 maps, including detailed topographic maps of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and contributions from more than 100 experts, the Atlas of Yellowstone is a comprehensive visual reference for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Atlas primary contributors Andrew Marcus, James Meacham and Ann Rodman will present a public talk on Tuesday, July 17 at 5:30 p.m. at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center Auditorium in Moose, WY. Ranging from art to wolves, from American Indians to the peaks of the Tetons, and from geysers to population, each page explains something new about the dynamic forces shaping Yellowstone.
“Through hundreds of maps the Atlas strives to tell the compelling story of Yellowstone and the Grand Teton national parks and the surrounding region,” said Atlas author James Meacham. “Some of the most dramatic pages include 3D displays of the storied climbing history of the Tetons... others present the glacial processes that carved the peaks.”
The presentation is sponsored by Grand Teton National Park Foundation in conjunction with Grand Teton National Park and Grand Teton Association. “We are delighted to welcome this group to Grand Teton. The Atlas is an impressive reference that appeals to many audiences who seek to learn more about Grand Teton and Yellowstone,” said Leslie Mattson, president of Grand Teton National Park Foundation.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Seating is available for the first 150 guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for purchase and signing via the Grand Teton Association bookstore following the presentation. To purchase online, visit www.ucpress.edu/9780520271555.
